During summer, we pay tribute to two artists in two solo exhibitions: Olivier Mosset (b. 1944) is considered one of the most radical representatives of contemporary painting. Taking the question of what painting is and how it works as a starting point, he created a diverse oeuvre consisting of monochrome and abstract geometric works that rejects any kind of mystifying interpretation. In her solo exhibition, Kirstine Roepstorff (b. 1972) explores darkness and its role in the formation of meaning. At Museum Haus Konstruktiv, she has build an installation that leads visitors from the darkness to the light.

This year, 50 Zurich museums are opening their doors at an unusual time, as an invitation to embark on a lively nocturnal journey of discovery:
At Museum Haus Konstruktiv, children aged 5 and above can use special paints to create a picture that sparkles and shines. Adults gain fascinating insight into the Olivier Mosset and Kirstine Roepstorff exhibitions on short guided tours. In the exhibition space by Parisian lighting designer Madjid Hakimi, the Zurich indie rock band Floorbrothers will play two live sets. The bar team invites you to the secluded courtyard for a burger barbeque (also suitable for vegetarians), drinks and electronic beats by DJ Keep. And with a little luck, you might even win a nice surprise on the Konrad wheel of fortune. Further information can be found at langenacht.ch.
