22 September - 14 October
Tart, Gotthardstrasse 54, Zürich, 8002 Switzerland + Google Map

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…

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…

Excess pressure – Piär Amrein

6 October - 14 October
Kiosk Tabak, Mutschellenstrasse 2, Zürich, 8002 Switzerland + Google Map

When Piär Amrein uses and processes "waste", a new product is created that is unmistakably different from the found raw material. The end of the usefulness of an object in daily life is often the beginning of a new existence in a counterworld, in which curiosity, dream, and ironic criticism develop an aesthetic that undermines a normalized view of the original articles of use. Piär's work is the playful, dreamy and yet reflective approach to a reality that is not…
