Opening: June 7, 6pm
June 8 – August 27, 2017
Counter Space: Stich & Oswald are the invited guests of Museum Haus Konstruktiv.
The Beton-Incubator is a hypothesis, a working model, a walk-in monument and a materialised utopia. It is formed from the question: What could be (a) space in the 21st century? What lies in between the wastelands, gaps, voids of a city and an architect’s plan that always aims for eternity? What would be an eternal interim use?
Seven artists are invited to be part of the project’s process and its development: Esther Mathis, Sebastian Utzni, Ursula Sulser, Chris Bünter, Michael Meier & Christoph Franz, Andreas
Waldmeier. Their contributions will enter into the dialogical production of pursuing questions.
The architects Hannes Oswald & Sebastian Stich, the curator Angelo Romano and the sculptor Beat Künzler are working together to stretch the idea of a „Counter Space“ (anti-space, non-space, space with contrary direction) into time and space: to give it a temporary three dimensional existence. The Beton-Incubator is one step within this practical researching process.
With the construction support of:
Beat Künzler, sculptor (CH); Apolinario Soares de Oliveira, Arch. Dipl. ETHZ (LP); Adrien Comte, Arch. Dipl. ETHZ (CH); Michelle Nägeli, Arch. Dipl. ETHZ (CH) and Adrien Meuwly (CH).
