Feliza Bursztyn, Untitled, 1968
Feliza Bursztyn: Welding Madness
Dec 18, 2021 – Jun 26, 2022
Muzeum Susch
Zernez, Switzerland

Feliza Bursztyn: Welding Madness is the first museum retrospective of Colombian artist Feliza Bursztyn  to be presented outside of her home country. Bringing together approximately 50 sculptures, films and installations as well as archival material, most of which are shown for the first time in Europe, this ambitious, career-spanning survey at Muzeum Susch positions Bursztyn as one of Latin America’s most important sculptors of the 20th century.

In 1979, Feliza Bursztyn was interviewed by Maritza Uribe de Urdinola, the founder of the Museo de Arte Moderna La Tertulia in Cali. Bursztyn reflected on her life, family and work. She also uttered the phrase that encapsulated the strategy that had defined her work for decades: in a patriarchal society, women have no choice but to feign madness.

The exhibition is curated by Marta Dziewańska, Curator at Kunstmuseum Bern and Abigail Winograd, Curator at Smart Museum of Art, University of Chicago. It will be accompanied by a fully illustrated book published by Skira.
