Including numerous hitherto unpublished works by the three internationally renowned Swiss artists Marks the occasion of the donation of the private Swiss Graber collections to the Kunsthaus Zug Accompanying an exhibition at the Kunsthaus Zug (Switzerland), Sept. - Nov. 2015Through a decade of friendship, sharing the same environs and being active collectors, Sonja Graber and Christian Graber are inextricably connected to the photographer Annelies Strba, the jewelry and object artist Bernhard Schobinger and the painter Adrian Schiess. A far cry from thoughts of prestige and conjecture, one of the most extensive collections from all genres of the three Swiss artists has now emerged out of artistic and personal esteem.In the collectors, the artists and the Kunsthaus Zug, like-minded people have come together in the most indiscriminate appreciation of fine and applied art. To mark the occasion of the donation of the Graber collections to the museum, the three internationally renowned artists along with hitherto largely unpublished works are now united in one publication.Contents: Foreword by Matthias Haldemann; Introduction to the Graber Collection by Marco Obrist; Things, Art Art Things by Felix Philipp Ingold; UNDINE'S SONG.
