Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Swiss Made is devoted to the work of fifteen Swiss artists, each of whom has made a permanent impression in the field of contemporary art. Their work is included in one of the world's most important Swiss collections of contemporary art: Hauser and Wirth. The featured artists make use of found objects and refuse, everyday things which they recycle in their art. This often results in large installations, including for example whole sections of wall and all sorts of spaces. There are often humorous and ironic allusions to other examples of art. The use of multimedia is another important feature that binds this generation. Swiss Made covers topics such as the history of Swiss art over the past twenty years, placing the Swiss art scene in an international context. Text in Dutch and English
