Das Bündner Kunstmuseum ist im Jahr 2015 mit Alex Hanimanns GASTSPIEL «Kunst plakativ. Tatsachen und Meinungen, Mutmassungen und Behauptungen» präsent am Bahnhof Chur

Januar bis Dezember 2015

Das Bündner Kunstmuseum ist mit drei Plakatwänden seit Jahren prominent präsent in der Churer Bahnhofsunterführung und bleibt dies auch während der baubedingten Schliessung. Für diesen Zeitraum konnte der St. Galler Künstler Alex Hanimann (*1955) gewonnen werden, dort jeden Monat eine neue Arbeit zu zeigen.
Hanimann, der mit seinem zeichnerischen Werk zu den wichtigsten Schweizer Kunstschaffenden der Gegenwart zählt, setzt sich im Rahmen seines Gastspiels mit dem Thema «Museum» und «Kunst» auseinander. Im Vordergrund der zwölfteiligen Plakatserie steht die Sprache, die der Konzeptkünstler als ein eigenständiges ästhetisches Medium einsetzt. Seine mit Schreibmaschinenschrift und Bleistift skizzenhaft verfassten «Tatsachen und Meinungen, Mutmassungen und Behauptungen» präsentieren sich in verschiedenen Erscheinungsbildern, die etwa von verästelten Mindmaps bis zu ausgiebigen Begriffsdefinitionen reichen.
In einer Zeit, in der das Bündner Kunstmuseum versucht, neue Perspektiven zu entwickeln, animieren Hanimanns vielseitigen Textarbeiten die PassantInnen in der Bahnhofspassage dazu, einen Moment innezuhalten, um dabei tradierte Vorstellungen zur Kunst und die damit in Verbindung stehenden Funktionen des Museums selber zu reflektieren und zu hinterfragen.

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.
