Simone Forti

Los Angeles-based Simone Forti (b. 1935, Florence) has been one of the most avant-garde international performance, dance and video artists since the 1960s. Forti defines herself as a ‘movement artist’. She is interested in what our bodies can know about things. In her works, which remain progressive today, and which consist of films, videos, photographs, installations, drawings and texts, she continually returns to the question of one’s own movement in space. Within this corporal work she deals with questions regarding how we deal with media and politics, as well as questions of behaviour we cultivate in direct interaction with one another. The exhibition at the Kunsthaus is Simone Forti’s first solo exhibition in Switzerland.
