Olaf Nicolai: Enjoy / Survive

 

31. March 2001  – 20. May 2001

Featuring artworks by:
Olaf Nicolai

In his first solo exhibition in Switzerland, the German artist Olaf Nicolai (*1962, lives in Berlin) will be presenting new works and selected work groups from recent years. Nicolai’s artistic work is devoted to analysing the processes of perception, thereby provoking a different way of receiving it. The exhibition in the migros museum will be subdivided into a series of different empirical moments, all of which can be experienced individually.
