Collection on Display presents selected works from the collection of the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst.

The new three-part cycle focuses on excesses, in terms of form and motif. Via surplus or reduction of marks and materials, visual languages emerge between high and low culture. Similarly, rapid, spontaneous and sketchy ways of working become gestures of excess. The pieces shown in this first part are based on artistic strategies that combine elements of pop and kitsch. The works deal with the status quo and the art-historical connotations of media such as painting and drawing, which have been developing beyond the limitations of the tableau format for quite some time.
