Herrmann Germann Contemporary, Stationsstr. 1, 8003 Zürich Schweiz + Google Map

Opening, Friday 24 February 2017 Exhibition, 25.02.–31.03.2017 The German dramatist Heiner Müller put it thus: “The universe of ideas is spent, only markets remain”, describing an unbearable emptiness.

Valentin Carron

10 June - 15 July
Galerie Eva Presenhuber, Limmatstrasse 270, 8005 Zürich Schweiz + Google Map
