Collection Part 2

 

30. June 2007  – 12. August 2007

Featuring artworks by:
Douglas Gordon   Fabrice Gygi   Ugo Rondinone   Piotr Uklanski   Costa Vece

In the context of a series of exhibitions over the course of the year combining various viewpoints the second collection presentation gathers together a choice of works that have been acquired by the museum since its founding. The current concern of the exhibition is to have the works make contact with current art production to integrate them in lively contemporary environment. The exhibition Collection Part II involves purchases of the early phase of the museum which take on various forms of stereotypical images, structures of perception and representation of power and violence.
