Since 2010, together with local galleries, institutions and artist-run spaces, the Work Group for Art in Public Spaces (AG KiöR) in Zürich (Switzerland) has been organizing an exhibition format that makes contemporary art visible in everyday life. Called “Gasträume”, the project provides space, selects the artworks and presents them in the urban space during the months of summer. It’s a great way to experience contemporary art, but also the city’s rapid urban development. This year, artworks are on display at 17 sites in the city center, Zürich West, Schwamendingen and Altstetten.
The artists participating in Gasträume 2019 are: Cristian Andersen; Arbeitsgemeinschaft Zürcher Bildhauer (AZB): Tian Lutz, Mickry 3, Aldo Mozzini, Severin Müller, Niklaus Rüegg; Olaf Breuning; Angela Bulloch; Hamish Fulton; Matthias Gabi; Beatriz González; Florian Graf; Severin Hallauer; Robert Indiana; Renata Kaminska; LAST (Nico Lazúla & Ruedi Staub; Adolf Luther; Mélodie Mousset; Reto Steiner; Veli & Amos; and Nicolas Vionnet.
