Museum Haus Konstruktiv established Lebanon-born and internationally esteemed artist Etel Adnan (b. 1925) the first Swiss museum exhibition in 2015. Etel Adnan shows that life and love can be just as intense at an advanced age as they are in one’s youth. She draws strength, so to speak, from countering the dark side of life with her little oil paintings in red, yellow, blue and pink—strength that enables her to remain an activist: an activist for humanity, equality and liberty, without any national or gender-specific boundaries. Adnan’s joie de vivre is contagious and I am hopeful that her artistic, humane, and political message will continue to spread. (Sabine Schaschl)
