The exhibition with the title Censorship And The Irrepressible Drive Toward Love And Divinity is Dorothy Iannone’s first major solo show in Switzerland. Dorothy Iannone, who was born in 1933 in Boston and currently lives and works in Berlin, is known for an oeuvre that depicts erotic love. As artistic media she uses paintings, drawings, collages, audio pieces, video sculptures, objects, and artist’s books. The retrospective at Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst in Zürich, Switzerland, starts with her artist’s book The Story Of Bern, which she created in 1969 in response to the censorship of her artworks.
