For the first time in a quarter of a century, a Swiss exhibition will be devoted to one of the most fascinating chapters in modern art: Der Blaue Reiter. The exhibition held in Munich in 1911 and the artistic movement by the same name resulted in a revolutionary new experience of art. The presentation will highlight the Almanac of the same name published by Wassily Kandinsky and Franz Marc, which heralded a turning-point in art and has left its mark on generations of artists right up until today.
Selected groups of works executed with different media will illustrate successive phases in the career of the internationally renowned American artist Roni Horn (*1955). In addition to works on paper, photographs and glass sculptures, the show will include a multipartite work for one wall executed especially for the exhibition – a new type of work for Roni Horn.
