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.
31 October 2019 to 12 January 2020
Media orientation: 29 October, 11 am / Opening: 30 October, 6 pm
In 2019, the Zurich Art Prize goes to Portuguese artist Leonor Antunes (b. 1972 in Lisbon, lives and works in Berlin). Antunes is known for her large-scale installations, in which she refers to themes and artists from the domains of 20th-century architecture, design and art.
Permanent Presentation from 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.
