Museum Revisited 1996-2016

 

Museum Revisited – 1996–2016, Exhibition view Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst, Photo: Nicolas Duc

The Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst celebrates its twentieth anniversary – an excellent occasion to turn the focus on the institution itself. We will try to envision its future while also looking back on its past, undertaking a searching and multifaceted examination of the history of the museum and its collection as well as our curatorial program. The section of the exhibition on view in the ground floor galleries Museum Revisited – 1996–2016 shines a spotlight on the everyday operations of the museum and presents unusual glimpses of what is going on behind the scenes, with particular emphasis on our art education activities. Publications, posters, photographic and video documentation, and archival materials trace the outlines of our work over the past two decades.
