Out of the Box / 20 Years Schaulager
Out of the Box / 20 Years Schaulager
Jun 10 – Nov 19, 2023
Münchenstein, Switzerland

Schaulager is proud to present a major group exhibition this year and has good reason to celebrate: Schaulager is turning 20 years young! Most of the works on display were acquired in recent years for the collection of the Emanuel Hoffmann Foundation. The focus of the exhibition is time-based media.

The title Out of the Box echoes a basic principle that Schaulager has pursued since first opening its doors in 2003: liberating works of art from a life in storage crates and making them accessible to both schools and universities for research and conservation. The title also refers to the growing number of complex installations, so-called time-based media works, that have been acquired by the collection and will be presented throughout the exhibition in projection boxes of their own.

Viewers moving about in this landscape of boxes will also discover a wealth of paintings, drawings, sculptures and photographs from the collection of the Emanuel Hoffmann Foundation. In some cases, they too make whimsical reference to the theme of the box or the crate. Music, body, space and architecture are focal points of the exhibition.

Out of the Box invites the public to engage with the art of our time in an enjoyable and thought-provoking manner and to consider issues affecting us today from a new perspective. It takes time to fully appreciate the art on display, especially the media works. The entrance tickets are therefore valid for three visits.

Subjectivity is melancholic, and that melancholy contains the evocation that restores the legacy for which others risked their fate. (more…)

  • LaToya Ruby Frazier: Monuments of Solidarity
    May 12 – Sep 7, 2024
    New York, USA

    “For this reason, it is incumbent upon me to resist – one photograph at a time, one photo essay at a time, one body of work at a time, one book at a time, one workers’ monument at a time – historical erasure and historical amnesia,” says artist-activist LaToya Ruby Frazier. Born in 1982 in the steel manufacturing town of Braddock, Pennsylvania, Frazier has used photography, text, moving images, and performance to revive and preserve forgotten stories of labor, gender, and race (more…)
