Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst, Zürich
artists & participants
After the collection exhibitions in Vaduz, Kassel and Krems, the migros museum für gegenwartskunst presents a variety of works from the collection before another presentation in Bolzano. The Migros-Genossenschafts-Bund's collection was created in 1957, when the Migros's statutes were set down, providing for the Migros-Kulturprozent (Migros Culture Percentage); the late 1970s brought a new focus on international contemporary art and greater professionalization. Divided into four sections, Tour d'Horizon offers insights into the different interests and thematic standpoints that guided acquisition policies over the decades, but also addresses specific aspects and issues of how a collection is built. The show focuses on the presentation of exemplary works that have not been on public display in a long time, if ever. Organized along a chronology of the collection's acquisitions, the exhibition is accompanied by a program of events that examine a wide range of questions about collecting and the history of the collection.
