To celebrate the opening of its new exhibition space in the Löwenbräu building, the Kunsthalle Zürich will present the exhibition ‘Looking Back for the Future’. To raise money for the Kunsthalle and its planned expansion, all of the works in the exhibition will be auctioned at Christie’s London, 28th of June 2012.
All works have been donated by artists who have contributed to the Kunsthalle Zürich’s identity and history since its inception in 1985. In turn, the Kunsthalle Zürich has helped to shape their careers and artistic development through its presentation of major solo exhibitions, publications and talks. The current director Beatrix Ruf has put together a strong exhibition with donations by artists including George Condo, Thomas Demand, Andreas Gursky, Fischli & Weiss, Karen Kilimnik, Richard Prince and Rosemarie Trockel, amongst others.
