6. February – 11. April 2010
The urban sprawl of the Swiss landscape incessantly forges ahead and stretches up to the Alpine valleys and the Jura mountains. The “urban penetration” makes itself noticeable in the mountain landscapes. The concrete and steel structures of the Alpine infrastructures strongly alter the appearance of mountains and valleys. The works in this year's collection exhibition impressively attest to this alteration. With partly idyllic, but also utopian depictions from the 19th century up to the present, the artists illustrate the transformation, evolution and the disappearance of entire landscapes. The exhibition is supplemented with more works by Reto Camenisch, Rainer Eisch, Christian Helmle, Monica Ursina Jäger and Reto Steiner.
With works by: Johann Ludwig Aberli, Bruno Augsburger, Reto Camenisch, Rainer Eisch, Emilienne Farny, Alfred Glaus, Vidya Gastaldon, Christian Helmle, Johannes Itten, Monica Ursina Jäger, Paul Klee, Max Matter, Otto Morach, Reto Steiner, Marquard Wocher inter alia.
