The New Embarrassment: Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst at UP STATE

Léo Bachiri Wadimoff, Ohne Titel

07.07.2015, 19:00

A rotating program of events from Helmhaus Zurich, Kunsthalle Zurich, Shedhalle, Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst, Haus Konstruktiv, and UP STATE.

This collaborative event series, from Zurich’s contemporary art exhibition locations, examines the topics of publicness, togetherness and mediation, in reference to the phenomenon of the embarrassing. Am I in the right place here? For whom is the first row of seats intended? How does one ask the first question? These situations, and others like them, structure the spectrum of experiences within public event programs. The participating organizations want to test, maintain and enhance their capacity for dilemma and disgrace with unfamiliar audiences and special guests, by leaving their traditional locations to realize talks, performances and workshops in an exchange with the other institutions.

UP STATE, Flüelastrasse 54, CH-8047 Zürich, Tel +41 79 795 66 72 / +41 76 824 57 07,
