11 project spaces – 11 art works – 11 ways

In order to expose the broad scope of ways, motivations and pay-offs of getting involved with contemporary art, the Postgraduate Programme in Curating has invited eleven project spaces and curatorial teams to the Gasthaus zum Bären in Zurich.

By reversing the evocative slogan of artist Antoni Muntadas Perception Requires Involvement, the exhibition title aims to allude to the close relation of social awareness, knowledge production and image circulation. The intention is to show various ways by which the discussion of topics relevant for today’s society is translated into the sphere of contemporary art and back.

Each curatorial initiative is given one of the eleven rooms at the Gasthaus zum Bären. Each of them will elaborate their approach in dialogue with an art work. The term “art work“ is understood in a broad sense, stretching from objects to social sculptures and other experimental formats. All eleven participants are self-organized and as part of the exhibition are asked to provide an insight on how they run.

The participating project spaces include:
100plus (Zurich, CH), bblackboxx (Basel, CH), CENTER (Berlin, D), DIENSTGEBÄUDE (Zurich, CH), eggn’spoon (Zurich, CH), Gasconade (Milan, I), HACIENDA (Zurich, CH), LULU (Mexico City, MEX), Raum  (Bern, CH), SALTS (Basel, CH), VACANT (Tokyo, JP­)

The participating artists include:
Copa & Sordes, bblackboxx no border academy,
Clémence de La Tour du Pin, Mathis Gasser, Colin Guillemet, Beat Huber, Aron Kullander-Östling, Antoine Renard, Mimmo Rubino, Jonas Schnyder, Rosalie Schweiker, et al.
