Collection on Display presents selected works from the collection of the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst. The new exhibition series consists of three shows devoted to the functions and possibilities of space and the role of the interior in contemporary art. The first installment brings together works by Monica Bonvicini, Heidi Bucher, Tom Burr, Urs Fischer, Pamela Rosenkranz, Markus Schinwald and Cathy Wilkes.

The presentations from the collection are curated by Judith Welter (Collection Curator, Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst).

In collaboration with the project "Anagrammatic Spaces: Interiors in Contemporary Art" at the University of Berne (supported by the Swiss National Science Foundation), we will organize an extensive program of events to be held in conjunction with the exhibitions.
