Concrete Contemporary

7 February to 5 May 2019

Taking the question of the extent to which contemporary art production latches onto our art-historical heritage as a starting point, Museum Haus Konstruktiv presents a large-scale group exhibition that has the nature of a statement. On all four floors of Museum Haus Konstruktiv, works by 34 artists from Switzerland and abroad are on display.

Konkrete Gegenwart

Olivier Mosset

30 May to 8 September 2019
Media orientation: 28 May, 11 am / Opening: 29 May, 6 pm

Olivier Mosset (b. 1944) is considered one of the most radical representatives of contemporary painting. Using the questions of “What is painting” and “How does it work” as a starting point, he created a diverse oeuvre consisting of monochrome and abstract geometric works that rejects any kind of mystifying interpretation.

Kirstine Roepstorff

30 May to 8 September 2019
Media orientation: 28 May, 11 am / Opening: 29 May, 6 pm

In her solo exhibition, Kirstine Roepstorff (b. 1972) will explore darkness and its role in the formation of meaning. Although most often associated with the unknown and the uncanny, for Roepstorff darkness does not have any negative connotations. At Museum Haus Konstruktiv, she will build an installation that leads visitors from the light to the darkness.
