1914/18 - Pictures from the Border

Fotostiftung Schweiz

Grüzenstrasse 45
8400 Winterthur
Exhibition
Online since 31 May 2014

The First World War not only gave rise to a new kind of devastating war machinery and heretofore unknown means of mass destruction, it was also the first war in which modern mass media and visual communication (film and photography) played a major part.

Hofstettenstrasse 14
3602 Thun
Exhibition
Online since 9 May 2014

Marcel Dzama's work includes drawings, collages, dioramas, painting, sculptures and videos and confronts the viewer with different axes of time and image. At first glance, the imageries of Dzama seem harmless, almost innocent. But behind this facade a grotesque and sometimes cruel universe opens up: masked, uniformed and armed, dancing, loving, or agonising characters are the protagonists of his imagery. Read more...
