Museum Haus Konstruktiv and Zurich Insurance Group Ltd are pleased to declare Marguerite Humeau the winner of this year’s Zurich Art Prize. In her show Marguerite Humeau (*1986) addresses a mythological figure: the sphinx. This French artist sees contemporary surveillance systems as direct descendents of this classical portentous human-animal hybrid.
Museum Haus Konstruktiv is pleased to be able to realize a comprehensive exhibition of works by Croatian artist Julije Knifer (1924–2004). Alongside paintings and works on paper, this show, developed in close cooperation with the artist’s daughter, also presents a selection of Knifer’s diaries.
Since 27 October permanent in the collection
The famous designer Alfredo Häberli was invited to conceive a new interior design for Fritz Glarner’s permanently exhibited Rockefeller Dining Room (1963/64), so as to make it possible to experience Glarner’s room-specific work in the context of a dining room once again.
Museum Haus Konstruktiv is located in the Heart of Zurich, in one of the finest industrial buildings: the former electrical substation Selnau. The museum is the leading institution for constructivist, concrete, and conceptual art in Switzerland, and is highly regarded internationally.
