CITY-COUNTRY-RIVER. GUSTAV STETTLER IN DIALOGUE WITH THE COLLECTION
The exhibition will focus on the work of Gustav Stettler while exploring the synergies between town and country. For this purpose, paintings by the Swiss artist will be flanked by a chronological selection of works in the Kunstmuseum Thun collection by artists who navigate between the urban scene and the rural environment. Among them are Cuno Amiet, Zora Berweger, Samuel Buri, Balthasar Burkhard, Burkhard Hilty, Diana Dodson, Rainer Eisch, Stefan Guggisberg, Dagmar Keller and Martin Wittwer, Reto Leibundgut, Claudio Moser, Helene Pflugshaupt, Fred and Ruth Stauffer, Michael Streun. This show is being organised in cooperation with Kunst Raum Riehen.
Project room enter:
VICE VERSA (AND) VICE VERSA (AS WELL)
Parallel to the new exhibition, the Kunstmuseum Thun is showing the project VICE VERSA (and) vice versa (as well) in the project room enter. Works by young artists from the villages of Aeschi and Krattigen will be presented. Supervised by the art education department (Elisa Daubner and Eva Schuler) and the Aeschi youth work programme (Amer Aiyub). Having grown up in a rural environment, the young people are drawn to the cities for their education. These experiences and their engagement with Gustav Stettler’s work gave rise to the works that they developed independently and curated as a collective.
