Michael Pankoks Refuge
Klinik Waldhaus, October 11, 2014 to January 11, 2015

The Bündner Kunstmuseum closed its doors on August 31, 2014 and will re-open in June 2016. In the meantime the Bündner Kunstmuseum is continuing its exhibition activity in its format of guest appearances, which has already been launched. With the exhibition of Michael Pankoks in the Klinik Waldhaus, Pankoks’ work will be extensively shown for the first time at the place where it originated.

Michael Pankoks (1894–1983) lived at the Klinik Waldhaus in Chur from 1951 up to his death in 1983. Pankoks was originally from Latvia; here too he was well known as a self-taught artist until his escape from the Soviet troops in 1944. Until that time he created several hundred works, mostly paintings, wood and stone sculptures, with which he drew attention to himself in numerous exhibitions. During his six years flight Mikelis Pankoks – Latvian spelling – spent his time mostly in German and Austrian camps. In the spring of 1951 the Latvian crossed the Austrian-Swiss border in Buchs where the European Aid transferred him to the clinic in Chur. Here Pankoks who had developed Schizophrenia did not resume his former artistic activity until 1960. He started carving various objects out of wood. In the process, he produced sculptural works, mostly in series, which covered such themes as cosmos, visions, man and animals. After his death 1983 Pankoks’ artistic legacy was handed over in equal parts to the Bündner Kunstmuseum as well as the Collection de l’Art Brut in Lausanne.

The exhibition in the Clinic Waldhaus draws attention to Michael Pankoks’ refuge, his second home and artistic domain. After the first and only exhibition in the spring of 1991 at the Bündner Kunstmuseum in cooperation with the head physician, Benedikt Fontana, Pankoks’ oevre is now shown at the place of its origin. Around 80 wooden figures are presented together with some original documents relating to different aspects such as paradise and garden, war, music or water.

Presentation of the award-winning documentary film “Zur Besserung der Person” (For the Betterment of a Person) (1980, German, 85 min.) by Heinz Bütler with a short introduction by Nicole Seeberger.
The Psychiatrist Leo Navratil gave the patients at the Niederösterreichischen Landkrankenhaus Gugging the possibility of being creative. This resulted in a touching film about people who live in their “own” world, have their own views and think up their own worldly wisdoms.

Das Bündner Kunstmuseum zu Gast bei der HTW Chur


Vier Abende zu Raum und Zeit
HTW Chur, 27. Oktober, 6. November, 20. November, 4. Dezember 2014

Im Rahmen der Gastspiele des Bündner Kunstmuseums findet eine Veranstaltungsreihe an der HTW Chur statt: Klassiker der Videokunst begegnen aktuellen Positionen, die sich anhand filmischer Mittel mit Raum auseinandersetzen. Kunst- und Architekturschaffende stellen ihre Arbeiten persönlich vor und diskutieren über die verschiedenen Konzepte von realem und immateriellem Raum.

Das Bündner Kunstmuseum (Katharina Ammann) organisiert in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Studiengang Bau und Gestaltung der HTW Chur (Daniel Walser) eine filmische Reihe zum Thema Raum und Zeit. Ausgehend von den Pionieren der Videokunst und von Künstlern, die sich explizit mit Raum und Architektur beschäftigen, wird ein Programm für vier Abend zusammengestellt. Jeder Abend umfasst Filmdokumente oder Videos, die durch einen Vortrag eingeführt, von den Künstlerinnen kommentiert oder von einem Gespräch zwischen Kunst- und Architekturschaffenden begleitet werden. Die Videoarbeiten reichen von Klassikern wie Bruce Nauman, Gordon Matta-Clark, René Bauermeister, Jean Otth und Valie Export bis zu jungen Positionen wie Zilla Leutenegger, Anina Schenker, Teresa Hubbard / Alexander Birchler und Veronika Spierenburg. Dabei geht es einerseits um die spezifischen Entwicklungen innerhalb der Videokunst der letzten vierzig Jahre. Anderseits werden architekturrelevante Fragen aufgegriffen, etwa wie sich der Mensch im Raum positioniert, welche Bedeutung Zwischenräume haben oder wie sich der immaterielle Raum im Video zum realen Raum verhält. Ziel der Veranstaltungsreihe und der Ausstellung im Foyer der HTW ist es, eine künstlerische Annäherung an das Thema Raum in einem vorwiegend architektonisch ausgerichteten Umfeld wie der HTW zu bieten.

Ausstellung: 27. Oktober bis 4. Dezember 2014, 8 bis 20 Uhr
Im Foyer der HTW Chur sind während der Dauer der Veranstaltungsreihe Videoinstallationen von Zilla Leutenegger und von Anina Schenker permanent ausgestellt. Darin wird die Raum-Zeit-Thematik auch ausserhalb der Veranstaltungsabende insbesondere an die Studierenden vermittelt.

The Bündner Kunstmuseum as Guest in the Villa Garbald and at the Museo Ciäsa Granda

The Fondazione Garbald celebrates a major anniversary in 2014. For this reason two exhibitions were set up in the Bergell in close cooperation with the Bündner Kunstmuseum Chur that are dedicated to the cosmos Garbald: In the Ciäsa Granda in Stampa and in the Villa Garbald in Castasegna. Opening of both exhibitions is on May 31, 2014.

Silvia Andrea – Andrea Garbald. Arte e Poesia
Exhibition Museo Ciäsa Granda, Stampa, June 1 to October 20, 2014

Under the pseudonym Silvia Andrea, Johanna Garbald-Gredig (1840-1935) was active as a writer. With her historical novels and stories about the history of Graubünden as well as with delicate little essays she attracted attention across the border of her native canton. Her son, Andrea Garbald, was a photographer and an artist. He remained attached to his home the Bergell all his life, acted as chronicler of the valley and took portraits as well as picture postcards and landscape photographs. Parallel to the commissioned work he created an independent photographic oeuvre and developed a visual aesthetic that was unique for his time. Starting point of the exhibition in the Ciäsa Granda is the book by Silvia Andrea about the Bergell, which is accompanied by Andrea Garbald’s photographs. Literature and art come together most beautifully in the encounter between mother and son. If up to now mainly the big names of the artist family Giacometti established the reputation of the valley as a special place for art, then Silvia Andrea and Andrea Garbald, thanks to this exhibition, now also join in and give us new insight into life and work in the Bergell.

Katalin Deér. Eco Echo Garbald
Art Installation Villa Garbald, Castasegna, June 1 to June 28, 2015

For almost 10 years the Bündner Kunsmuseum uses the Villa Garbald as outpost. The rooms do not serve as a gallery but serve rather as a stimulus for art. In this anniversary year (150 years Villa Garbald, 10 years Denklabor Garbald) such a requirement is being particularly responded to. For the anniversary installation the artist Katalin Deér (*1965) takes a look at Andrea Garbald’s work and shows it afresh from a different perspective. With her camera she has done pictorial research and has taken pictures of the Garbald photographs in the archive and in the exhibition space. What has come to light is the photographic view: She shows us how Andrea Garbald saw things: How the people, the animals, the objects, the houses are both objects and subjects. And how his view on the nearest surroundings has always been a look into the distance as well. Thus Andrea Garbald’s entire world manifests itself in the selection chosen by Katalin Deér for this location. How he experienced it and set it into pictures – and how his view of things is felt by her as an artist of today.

The anniversary exhibitions on occasion of 150 years Villa Garbald/10 years Denklabor Garbald were organised by the Bündner Kunstmuseum Chur. They were created in close cooperation with the Società Culturale/PGI Bregaglia as well as the Fondazione Garbald.
