David Hominal Group show Kunstmuseum Bern, Bern 12 September - 14 February 2021

Was erzählen uns zeitgenössische Kunstwerke zum Wechselbad der Gefühle, welches wir im Lockdown erlebt haben? Zur gesundheitlichen Gefährdung und Todesfällen kamen neue existenzielle Verunsicherungen, während «social distancing» zum Schlagwort der Stunde wurde. Auf der Gegenseite konnte man Solidarität, Nachbarschaftshilfe und mehr familiären Austausch erleben. In unserer Zusammenstellung von Werken aus der Sammlung Gegenwartskunst – der Ausstellungstitel ist einem Werk der Genfer Künstlerin Vidya Gastaldon entlehnt – wagen wir einen Streifzug durch die jüngste Kunstgeschichte. Immer auf der Suche nach dem, was uns die jeweiligen Künstler und Künstlerinnen über extreme Zustände und Emotionen erzählen. Mit Werken von: Marina Abramovic, Luc Andrié, Christian Boltanski, Michael Buthe, Miriam Cahn, Martin Disler, Quynh Dong, Vidya Gastaldon, Daiga Grantina, David Hominal, Urs Lüthi, Markus Raetz, Jean-Frédéric Schnyder, Francisco Sierra.

Sylvie Fleury: Evelyne Axell: Body Double

Sylvie Fleury Group show with Special Participation of Sylvie Fleury Muzeum Susch, Susch 01 August - 06 December 2020 Curated by Anke Kempkes and Krzysztof Kościuczuk Muzeum Susch presents Body Double, a retrospective exhibition of the Belgian Pop-Surrealist Evelyne Axell (1935-1972). With her original feminist approach in the 1960s Axell became one of the pioneers of Pop Art in Europe. Her distinct body of work is populated by an all-female universe, transcending the established iconography of Pop Art at the time and reclaiming the discourse of women’s sexuality. As a special contribution, the exhibition features the prominent installation Marcel et Robert (2009) by Swiss artist Sylvie Fleury, entering into a cross-generational iconographic dialogue with Axell’s work. The rotating disk forming the base of Fleury’s work is designed as a giant Pop-coloured target mirroring the concentric composition in Axell’s painting The Wall of Sound (1966).   Image: Sylvie Fleury André et Robert (mint pearl and aubergine), 2019 Mini skirt and mannequin legs 110 x 40 x 55 cm 43 1/4 x 15 3/4 x 21 5/8 in Photo credit: Flavio Karrer  

Pamela Rosenkranz: Alles echt!

Pamela Rosenkranz Group show Kunstmuseum Luzern 29 February - 22 November 2020 Das Thema der Imitation und Kopie ist so alt, wie die Kunst selbst. Von der Antike bis ins 19. Jahrhundert strebte die Kunst eine möglichst genaue Imitation der äusseren Natur an. Seit der Moderne macht sich die Kunst immer mehr selbst zum Thema. Kunst als Referenz oder Zitat ist seit Marcel Duchamps berühmtem Readymade eine künstlerische Strategie.
Im Akkord arbeiten Meisterfälscher für reiche Sammlerinnen und Auftraggeber, die doch lieber einen kopierten «Leonardo Da Vinci» zu Hause hängen haben, als ein Original einer weniger bekannten Künstlerin. Denn 70 Jahre nach dem Tod des Urhebers ist das Erstellen einer Kopie legal. Übrigens verfügt auch das Kunstmuseum Luzern über die wohl meist kopierte Ikone der Kunstgeschichte überhaupt: eine hauseigene Mona Lisa.
Diesen Phänomenen der Imitation, Nachahmung, Kopie und Wiederholung soll im Kontext der Sammlungspräsentation nachgespürt werden. Zusätzliche Leihgaben ergänzen und vertiefen die Auslegeordnung.     Image: Pamela Rosenkranz Alien Blue Window, 2018 Lighttex, LED, anodized frame, remote control 100 x 30 cm (39 3/8 x 11 3/4 in) Photo credits: Stefan Altenburger

Xanti Schawinsky Group Show Kunsthaus Zürich, Zürich 03 July - 11 October 2020 The 1920-ties were times of departure and relapse.

Ser Serpas: Untitled, 2020

Ser Serpas  Group show  Punta della Dogana, Venice 11 July - 13 December 2020 Punta della Dogana presents the exhibition ‘Untitled, 2020’, conceived and curated by Caroline Bourgeois, Muna El Fituri and the artist Thomas Houseago. Five years after ‘Slip of the Tongue’, conceived by Danh Vo and Caroline Bourgeois and presented at Punta della Dogana in 2015, this is the second time that an artist of the Pinault Collection has been invited to present his personal view of the collection. Conceived especially for the spaces of Punta della Dogana, ‘Untitled, 2020’ is organised into themes and presents the works of more than 60 artists held by the Pinault Collection, international museums and private collections. Accompanied by a wealth of references and quotes and ranging from the twentieth century through to the present day, the works set up a dialogue that triggers emotional, sensory, visual and tactile connections. Covering a broad range of expressive media, from sculpture to video, and painting to photography, the works on view revolve around the recreation of Thomas Houseago’s studio in Tadao Ando’s cube room, in the heart of Punta della Dogana. In this space, the artist makes available to visitors his library and the sources of his inspiration through a site-specific installation.

Vivian Suter: Bonzo's Dream

Vivian Suter Bonzo's Dream Brücke-Museum, Berlin 13 September 2020 - 14 February 2021 Mit der Einladung der argentinisch-schweizerischen Künstlerin Vivian Suter (geb. 1949 in Buenos Aires, lebt und arbeitet in Panajachel, Guatemala) tritt die Sammlung des Brücke-Museums zum ersten Mal in den direkten Dialog mit einer zeitgenössischen Position. In einem raumgreifenden Arrangement stellt Suter ihre freihängenden Leinwände den Gemälden, grafischen Werken und kunsthandwerklichen Arbeiten der Künstlergruppe Brücke gegenüber. Diese subjektive, intuitive und erzählerische Auswahl trifft die Künstlerin. Auch eine Reihe von kleinformatigen Collagen der Künstlerin Elisabeth Wild (geb. 1922 in Wien; gest. 2020 in Panajachel, Guatemala), Vivian Suters Mutter, werden zu sehen sein. In der Begegnung der historischen Position der Brücke mit der Ausstellungspräsentation Suters entfaltet sich die künstlerische Auseinandersetzung mit der Natur durch unterschiedliche Mittel und im Kontext eines erweiterten Malereibegriffs.   Image: Vivian Suter Photo credit: Flavio Karrer
