24 August - 21 October
Roehrs & Boetsch, Bachstrasse 9, Zürich 8038 Schweiz + Google Map

The exhibition 'Now on View' is a series of snap-shots of our digital present taken by eight young international artists. The seventeen works in the exhibition have been chosen with the aim to highlight the disappearing border between the digital and the real, bringing to the fore how reality takes on a new level of complication that resists any easy categorization and handling. Through their works all artists aim to confront us with the digital present both as critical examination…

The Bildhalle is looking forward to announcing the first single exhibition since the death of the most famous and revered Swiss photographer in close cooperation with the Burri family for the 2017/18 season, thus commemorating this «humanist with camera».

God’s Children, God’s Poem – Jimmie Durham

26 August - 5 November
Migros Museum, Limmatstrasse 270, 8005 Zürich Schweiz + Google Map

Opening: Friday, 25 August 2017 In the work of Jimmie Durham (b. 1940 in Washington, Arkansas), the examination of societal and political topics, but also the issue of the representation of civilising values, historicity and societal identity, are of central importance. His installations and sculptures reflect on the status of the object between civilizing fetish and artwork, and are metaphors for the sometimes complex and problematic encounters between the human being, technology and nature, from different cultural perspectives. Durham became…

Cheryl Donegan

26 August - 19 November
Kunsthalle Zürich, Limmatstrasse 270, 8005 Zürich Schweiz + Google Map

Opening: Friday, August 25, 2017 The exhibition at Kunsthalle Zürich will be the first comprehensive presentation of Cheryl Donegan’s work in Europe. In her films, works, and projects, Donegan investigates the idea of painting, at first seemingly backwards or amiss. If there is an ostensible and assumed lack of professionalism, it offers, in the context of painting, an alternative to marketable virtuosity, generic abstraction, and banal references. We face an oeuvre of “as if” exploring the challenging relationship between thinking…

John Russell

26 August - 19 November
Kunsthalle Zürich, Limmatstrasse 270, 8005 Zürich Schweiz + Google Map

Opening: Friday, August 25, 2017 John Russell restages ideas of total hybridity of gender, nature, man and beast in his films, images, books, and installations ranging from real to virtual and fictional filtered through literature, theory, religion, and art. His fictions emerge in the middle of anarchy, vacuum, dystopia, where everything is possible and our lives mere networks. Satire meets historical painting meets science fiction, vision, and excess, and before we know it we come face to face with a…

Coffee from Helvécia

29 August 2017 - 28 January 2018
Johann Jacobs Museum, Seefeldquai 17, 8034 Zürich Schweiz + Google Map

African Brazil, St. Galler embroidery and a modernist utopia One of the largest coffee plants of the 19th century, located in the Brazilian north-east, was firmly established in Swiss hands. However, what exactly took place there is largely unknown. Today's state of Helvécia hardly reveals the voluntary and involuntary forms of work and life that have developed between European immigrants and African slaves and their free offspring. A century later, another coffee plantation will be the scene of a social…

If birds move through the air, the shape of their wings causes air movements that give them…

22 September to 14 October The accomplice. A partner through thick and thin. A confidant, a victim, an accomplice. The complicitness makes her shadowy past from the past visibly. Over the past decades, more and more legitimate complications have been observed - networking is building visible and invisible bridges between places, people and potentials. Is this networking a never-ending time-spirit, an indispensable attitude on the way to successful projects? Or is it simply the lived realization that cooperation creates the…

Here, you, the spectator, the viewer are the same complice and intruder: The performers use the helm house as a playground, as an ecosystem, as a habitat. Touching, complimenting, shifting attention, looking back. Between closeness and distance, presence and disappearance, a sensuous landscape emerges - cheerful and eerie at the same time.

ABOUT: THE BALTIC ATLAS … is a gradient between two questions. The first: "what is possible to imagine?" focuses on interpretations, fictional stories, analyses, and reflections on the ongoing processes, and proposes future projections. The second: "what is possible?" is an inquiry into the methods, resources, and parameters that define space. Parallel discourses are positioned next to each other—overlaid in an atlas that works in range of different modes. An atlas is a medium that unravels multiple ways of seeing…

Each performance is haphazardly crowbarred into its site and context − rejigged, added to, undone and perverted.
