Let’s invent a language to narrate my story

With Let's invent a language to narrate my story, the art-werk association presents a double exhibition that deals with narration in contemporary art from the point of view of the artist and the viewer. In line with the desire to promote cultural exchange between Switzerland's two largest language regions, the exhibition Let's invent a language to narrate my story will showcase six artists from French-speaking Switzerland in the office building in Zurich and six German-speaking swiss artists in the art space andata.ritorno in Geneva.

Each individual work is a carrier and simultaneously mediator of stories that fit together like chapters and want to be read by the viewer in the exhibition.

A mini camera can be handed out to the visitor to enable other viewers to take a virtual tour. In this way, the individual tour through the works is at the same time transmitted to both exhibition venues and to a website. The transmission of the images documents the activities of the two art spaces and encourages visitors to physically explore the two exhibitions themselves.
