Sophie Taeuber-Arp (1889-1943) ranks among the most important Swiss artists of the twentieth century. A woman of many talents and a master of form, colour and material, she created an oeuvre combining the highest demands on quality and consistency in the fields of design, painting, textiles, drawing, sculpture, architecture, dance and scenography. Including more than 300 exhibits, the exhibition "Sophie Taeuber-Arp: Today Is Tomorrow" provides the opportunity to explore, in unprecedented depth and breadth, the artist's way of thinking and working across art forms and thus to fully appreciate her achievement as a pioneer of modernism.
