Museum Haus Konstruktiv opens with three solo exhibitions. We are presenting the twelfth winner of the internationally renowned Zurich Art Prize: Portuguese artist Leonor Antunes (b. 1972). In her works, she draws on the formal language of modernist design objects – especially those designed by women. To mark the anniversary 100 Years of the Bauhaus, we are using works from our collection to shine a spotlight on Bauhaus student Roman Clemens (1910–1992), who also became famous in Switzerland as the first stage designer at the Zurich City Theater (today’s Zurich Opera House). Meanwhile, the exhibition on Camille Graeser (1892–1980) looks into the question of how this successful furniture designer and interior designer from Stuttgart developed into one of the main representatives of concrete art in Zurich.
Celebrate with us the opening of the autumn exhibitions.
From 6.45 pm onward: Speeches and award ceremony with Andreas Durisch, President of the Foundation for Constructivist, Concrete and Conceptual Art, Michel M. Liès, Chairman of the Board at Zurich Insurance Group Ltd, and Sabine Schaschl, Director of Museum Haus Konstruktiv.
The exhibitions are also accompanied by a diverse program of events in German - with lectures, special guided tours and workshops as well as various mediation formats for children and families. >>>
