Crazy, Cruel and Full of Love

12. September 2020 – 14. February 2021

Kunstmuseum Bern (Swiss)

As always, the online gallery invites you to visit different museums, different expositions in France or Switzerland. Each of these excursions fulfills the purpose and the desire to take the majority of them with them to this cultural event. We invite you to use our professional knowledge to talk about various topics, abstract art, sculptures … Take your chance!
In the end, the online gallery does not receive any money for its participants. The entrance to the museum, the transport, as well as the overnight stays (if necessary) are each subject to a charge and must be clarified with the relevant organisms.

What do contemporary works of art tell about the emotional roller coaster that was experienced in lockdown?

“Crazy”, “cruel” and also “full of love” describe the rollercoaster of emotions that many people experienced during the lockdown. In addition to health hazards, illness and deaths, there were further existential insecurities:
Short-time work, unemployment and reduced income have created new economic realities, while “social distancing” has become the buzzword of the hour. On the other side you could also experience stronger solidarity, neighborly help and – due to home office and homeschooling – more family exchanges. People had to get along in a small space, and there were limits to the ways in which pleasure and entertainment could be distracted.

With works by: Marina Abramovic, Luc Andrié, Christian Boltanski ….

Artemis Irenäus will be waiting for you in front of the museum. Make sure to tell us if you will come.
