Over the summer, Museum Haus Konstruktiv is exhibiting two different artists: Firstly, it is holding Switzerland’s first large solo exhibition devoted to the internationally renowned Argentine artist Tomás Saraceno (b. 1973). Secondly, with a retrospective solo show, it is paying tribute to the work of Swiss artist Jürg Stäuble (b. 1948), which is situated in the context of minimalism, land art and conceptual art. During these two exhibitions, we offer a diverse accompanying program – with lectures, artist talks, performances, special guided tours and workshops, as well as art mediation for children and families.

Inauguration of the “Counter Space Concrete Incubator” in front of Museum Haus Konstruktiv
Free entry. The life-size model will be possible to visit until 27 August 2017.
The concrete incubator is a conceptual model, a test space, a walk-through monument and a materialized utopia, arising from the following questions: What lies between the wastelands, gaps and voids of a city and a design for eternity? What could an eternal temporary usage be?
Architects Hannes Oswald & Sebastian Stich and curator Angelo Romano are working to lend the concept of “counter-space” (anti-space, non-space, space with reverse direction) a real, spatial and temporal dimension. The concrete incubator is one step in this practical research work.
Ticket: CHF 25, under 16 years: free entry

Concert with performance-based elements by artist Milenko Lazic, midnight magic show with magician Christian D. Link, short guided tours in German through the current exhibitions, workshops for children, drinks & food in the museum forecourt and at the bar.
