Group exhibition “The Show Must Go On-Works from the contemporary art collection”,
at the Kunstmuseum Bern,
on 21 Sept. 2017, 6.30-9pm
Cur. Kathleen Bühler
with works by John M. Armleder, Pavel Büchler, Leidy Churchman, Klodin Erb, Dora García, Franz Gertsch, Manon, Claes Oldenburg, Julian Opie, Anne-Julie Raccoursier, Dieter Roth, Vittorio Santoro, Denis Savary, Shimabuku, Kimsooja, Sam Taylor-Johnson, Silvie Zürcher
Taking this aspect as its lens, the exhibition has put together photographs, videos, objects, paintings, and installations that address theater, film, performance, role play, staging and production. The exhibition is not only presenting documentation from performances but also the props and objects featured in them. It is likewise showing installations with texts and sound as well as strongly spatial, monumental paintings. These works engage with the multifaceted ways in which performativity has manifested itself in art objects and incite the public to perform too.
