By focusing on processes, the museum presents the contexts in design through exemplary models, projects, and designs, and illustrates the procedures in both design…

Kunsthaus, Heimplatz 1, 8001 Zürich Schweiz + Google Map

The precious ‘Cantastorie’, a fascinating and unknown accumulation of images and image cycles, were handed down from one generation to the next in two families of minstrels and puppeteers from Naples and Foggia who used them to place great cultural issues literally before an audience. In a way they were the first comics, full of beautiful princesses, valiant knights, chaotic battles, gruesome tales and voracious monsters. Some 100 magnificently colourful masterpieces of folk art created in the first decades of…

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…

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…
