In 2015 the Bündner Kunstmuseum is present in the railway station in Chur with Alex Hanimann's GASTSPIEL, "Kunst plakativ. Tatsachen und Meinungen, Mutmassungen und Behauptungen," (Eye-catching Art. Facts and Opinions, Conjectures and Assertions).


January 2015 to December 2015

For years the Bündner Kunstmuseum has been prominently present with three billboards in the underpass of Chur's railway Station. This will remain so while the museum is closed due to reconstruction. During this time the artist Alex Hanimann from St. Gallen will be showing a new work there every month.

In the context of his "Gastspiel", Hanimann who with his graphic work is one of the most important Swiss contemporary artists is concerned with the topic "Museum" and "Art". Paramount for the twelve-piece poster series is language, which the concept artist uses as an independent aesthetic medium. His "Facts and Opinions, Conjectures and Assertions" composed sketchily in typewriter script and pencil presents itself in a variety of forms, which range from complex mind maps to extensive term definitions. At a time in which the Bündner Kunstmuseum is trying to develop new perspectives, Hanimann's varied texts animate the passers-by in the station underpass, to stop for a moment in order to reflect and question traditional notions on art and ist related functions within the museum.

Val Lumnezia - aspects
Casa d'Angel Lumnezia July 12 to October 17, 2015

The Bündner Kunstmuseum in collaboration with the Fundaziun Capauliana and the Fundaziun da cultura Lumnezia is organising an exhibition in the Casa d'Angel in Lumbrein. This exhibition is the commencement to establishing the "Casa d'Angel" as a cultural centre for the valley.  

The collection of the Fundaziun Capauliana forms the Basis for this exhibition. Duri Capaul (1923-2009) who came from Lumbrein and his wife Clara Capaul-Hunkeler (1926-2010) assembled an extensive collection of Images referring to Graubünden. Contained in the foundation are almost 300 Images of Val Lumnezia. From this rich stock of drawings, paintings and photographs - together with a small selection of works from the collection of the Bündner Kunstmuseum - an exhibition has been arranged, which reflects specific views ans aspects of the valley. Thus renowned artists such as Alois Carigiet and less known painters are positioned side by side. Contemporary photographs by Anna Lenz, Thomas Popp or Ester Vonplon enter into a dialogue with historical Images, uninhabited landscapes by Bryan Cyril Thurston Encounter watercolours by Georg Peter Luck, which document the construction of the Zervreila power station. 

The exhibition conveys a very diverse Picture of Val Lumnezia. The different aspects of this Region and the varied artistic perspectives constitute the core of the exhibition in the interior of the Casa d'Angel, which was renovated by the architect Peter Zumthor in the 1980s.

The Bündner Kunstmuseum as Guest in the Villa Garbald

Florio Puenter
Art Installation Villa Garbald, Castasegna, July 5, 2015 to July 31, 2016

The Fondazione Garbald in Castasegna runs a «Denklabor» (think lab) and carries the openminded spirit of the family Garbald into the future. For this the Villa, planned by Gottfried Semper, and the new tower by the architects Miller&Maranta stand available. For the past 10 years the Bündner Kunstmuseum has collaborated by bringing special impulses to this location through annually changing presentations. In doing so the Bündner Kunstmuseum strives particularly to preserve the legacy of the photographer and artist Andrea Garbald and to keep alive the art of photography in this house. Following this principle the artist Florio Puenter from St. Moritz has been invited. He has made a specific selection of his work and with the medium of photography and its history, has laid a unique trail of controversy throughout the rooms of the Villa. The presentation also affords deeper insights into this work, which is documented in the accompanying publication as well.

Opening: Saturday, July 4, 2015 at 5 pm
