Let's Be Friends

 

The migros museum will be showing works from its own collection until 18 March 2001. Since the opening in May 1996, an exemplary selection of works from the Nineties has been put together. Over a hundred new installations, videos and photographs have been purchased during the last years. In most cases it concerns the works of artists who have exhibited in the museum.
