Nature. Sound. Memory

with Monira Al Qadiri, Joan Jonas, Sigalit Landau, Maya Schweizer, Hannah Weinberger
This group exhibition focuses on large-scale installations, particularly video works that directly address the themes of nature, climate change, sound, memory, and participation. Through an approach that is both poetic and immersive, they enable the viewer to have a unique experience and ultimately gain a deeper understanding of these issues. Many of the works are concerned with questions of heedfulness towards natural spaces, history, time, identity, memory, in connection with sound works and performative practices. Both urban and natural spaces—such as oceans, lakes, and deserts—are experienced as interfaces of individual and collective behaviors.
This will be the first time that these works will be shown in Switzerland. The exhibition is accompanied by a series of events called Soundfields.
The exhibition is curated by Ines Goldbach, together with Käthe Walser.
