Press Release:

Hacienda presents a weekend show at 1857. 

This two-part exhibition brings together eight young artists from Switzerland.

One part takes place in EUROPE, EUROPE at the Astrup-Fearnley Museum from 22 January until 1 February, where each of the artists have produced a poster as a teaser for the show at 1857.

SUPERTRUMPF – A Lecture Performance by Matthias Gabi takes place on 22/1 at 18:30 at the Astrup-Fearnley Museum

The other part is on view at 1857 the weekend of 24 – 25 January.


At 1857 a cluster of pieces are gathered, all conceived for the occasion. The title,, has to be understood as an ironic reference to the rich exhibition history of Swiss art at home and abroad (Freie Sicht aufs Mittelmeer, Swiss Made – Präzison und Wahnsinn, Beispiel: Schweiz, Saus und Braus etc.).

Art exhibitions on the Swiss art scene have become a curatorial perennial in recent decades. The ways and forms by which artistic discourses and art scenes were institutionally represented, labeled and utilized have often been criticized. The flyer for references a notorious insert that Niele Toroni made for a catalog of Swiss art in the 1970s and –80s, in which Swiss crosses were filled with folkloristic imagery.
