      The Gift of the Graber Collections
      19. September bis 15. November, 2015

      Once you’re on the road you often meet like-minded travellers. The same applies to the Kunsthaus Zug holdings, and just such a happy encounter of affinities took place with regard to the collections of Sonja Graber and Christian Graber. Usually, for example, a rigorous distinction is made between the visual and the applied arts. In the collection of the Kunsthaus Zug, which encompasses the Viennese workshops, no such line is drawn. What is more, they have already devoted exhibitions to Annelies Štrba and Bernhard Schobinger, both of whom are represented in their collection.
      Sonja Graber and Christian Graber are long-time friends, neighbours and collectors of the photographer Annelies Štrba, the jewellery and object artist Bernhard Schobinger and the painter Adrian Schiess. Their paths cross in Richterswil. Far removed from considerations of prestige and/or profit-making, but on the basis of artistic and personal appreciation instead, the Grabers amassed one of the most extensive collections of the works of these three artists – all of whom today enjoy international recognition – with examples from all phases of their careers.

  • Exhibition: Fotofestival Mannheim - Ludwigshafen - Heidelberg
  • Details
    • The exhibition [7] Places [7] Precarious Fields installs, in [7] museums and art venues, [7] precarious fields of our society today and discusses them on the basis of chiefly contemporary photographic and video works.

      In a blend of documentary and artistic works, of murals, projections, installations, showcase works, films and videos, a discursive climate that is also optically visible is to be generated, a climate that meets the requirements for dealing with these themes. The exhibition deals with uprooting, delocalization, alienation, with high-tech production and social control, with real and virtual migration; with aggrandized self-images, highly-strung psyches, inordinate rapacity, with narcissism and loss of self-control, and finally with violence, surveillance and punishment. And, of course, communication and control through photographic images will likewise be a central focus of the project. 

      Via the works of photographers and artists, the [7] exhibitions intend to look these real situations in the face. Even if every reflection on the real always contains something fictive at the same time: Photography (photographers and artists) has always dealt particularly intensively, in recent decades, with social and economic relationships in today's world. The crucial point of the exhibitions will be that it will not be classic photographic thinking that is brought to bear (pointing its finger, this thinking believes it can name the world's problems and, through naming, solve them), but contemporary and videographic positions that get to work in these critical, precarious fields, that work inside them – questioning, seeking, testing, formulating.
