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 15 sites in the city center, Zürich West, and Altstetten.
The artists participating in Gasträume 2020 are: Michael Sailstorfer, Corina Rüegg, Jacobo Castellano, Fiona Könz & Gregor Vogel, Jorge Macchi, Peter Baracchi, Ugo Rondinone, Nicola Genovese, Ralph Bürgin, Walter Pfeiffer, Aldo Mozzini, Ronja Römmelt, Estela Sokol, Lithic Alliance, and Una Szeemann.
