Hour Zero. Resignation and Renewal in Art

Jun 7 - Sep 22 2019       Heimplatz 1
This exhibition examines developments in art between 1933 – a watershed year in history – and 1955. It features European and North American pieces from the Kunsthaus Collection, including many from Switzerland. How did artists respond in their work to the historical rift created by fascism and World War II? And how, between the end of the conflict and the mid-1950s, did they find new ways to give shape to existence – and indeed the existence of art itself? The answers to these questions, seen through the prism of the Kunsthaus Collection, are both fascinating and often surprising. Expect works by Alberto Giacometti, Fritz Glarner, Sophie Taeuber-Arp, Pablo Picasso, Joan Miró and many others.



Open 10:00 - 18:00, Wed, Thu 10:00 - 20:00. Closed Mon. Jun 7 2019 - Sep 22 2019
