Apropos Hodler | Kunsthaus Zürich

The Kunsthaus Zürich examines the contemporary relevance of Switzerland’s ‘national artist’, Ferdinand Hodler. ‘Apropos Hodler’ counters one-sided interpretations with the rich diversity of the painter’s formal, cultural and political impact, and sets out to view the old and familiar with new eyes. Works by more than 30 contemporary artists are juxtaposed with some 60 paintings by the Swiss icon.

With works by Asim Abdulaziz, Laura Aguilar, Caroline Bachmann, Sabian Baumann, Denise Bertschi, Ishita Chakraborty, Andriu Deplazes, Latifa Echakhch, Eva Egermann & Cordula Thym, Marianne Flotron, Dani Gal, María Elena González, Christina Hemauer & Roman Keller, David Hockney, Sasha Huber, Roland Iselin, Frantiček Klossner, Nils Amadeus Lange, Izidora I LETHE, Urs Lüthi, André M’Bon, Nicolas Party, RELAX (chiarenza & hauser & co), Ugo Rondinone, Susan Schuppli, Selma Selman, Milva Stutz and Latefa Wiersch.

Stranger in the Village | Aargauer Kunsthaus

In his famous text Stranger in the Village, the US-American writer James Baldwin addressed the racism that informed his stay in Switzerland in the 1950s. Baldwin’s words continue to inspire many artists to this day. They hold up a mirror to us as a society and have lost none of their relevance. The group exhibition explores belonging and exclusion through current works by local and international artists, raising questions that concern us all.

With works by Igshaan Adams, Judith Albert, Joshua Amissah, Luc Andrié, Kader Attia, Maria Auxiliadora da Silva, Omar Ba, James Bantone, Sabian Baumann, Denise Bertschi, Notta Caflisch, Vincent O. Carter, Ishita Chakraborty, Marlene Dumas, Tatjana Erpen, Hanny Fries, Klaus Hennch, Jonathan Horowitz, Sasha Huber, Hans Josephsohn, Laura Kingsley, Vincent Kohler, Pierre Koralnik, Namsa Leuba, Glenn Ligon, André M’Bon, Gianni Motti, Sirah Nying, Senam Okudzeto, Uriel Orlow, Frida Orupabo, Ceylan Öztrük, Markus Raetz, Petri Saarikko, Niki de Saint Phalle, Lorna Simpson, Martine Syms, Olga Titus, Carrie Mae Weems.

Health is a timeless human preoccupation. The sensitive body is at once a working tool and object of observation. Taking their cue from works in the Kunsthaus collection, six chapters examine the productive interplay of sickness and pain, medicine, care and healing through 300 exhibits, over 200 of which are being made available by some 40 national and international lenders. Early examples date back to the 15th century, while the most recent are works from 2022 produced specially for the exhibition.
