Collection on Display: Communities, Ausstellungsansicht Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst, Foto: FBM Studio

The exhibition format «Collection on Display» presents works from the collection of the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst as a three-part themed series with the title Communities, Rules and Rituals. The first exhibition, Communities, showcases artists who adopt different perspectives to scrutinise issues involving «communities». The works address the construction of collective identities and focus on the resultant distinction from a possible Other.
