Bündner Kunstmuseum Chur

In both houses, the Villa Planta and the extension with its various spatial qualities, art can be experienced in an entirely different way.
The collection of the Bündner Kunstmuseum has developed since its founding around 1900 out of the specific cultural situation of Graubünden: Part of this is the impact of the mountain landscape as well as the interplay between emigration and tourism. Artists come and go, carry the particular out into the world and bring the world to Graubünden. The Bündner Kunstmuseum can look back on a focused collecting activity of more than one 100 years. With numerous works by Angelika Kauffmann, the artist family Giacometti, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, the artist group “Rot-Blau”, all with a close connection to the canton Graubünden and of art historical significance today, an unmistakable collection profile was created. But also in the field of contemporary art the collection reflects the diversity of present-day art forms.

Current exhibition(s)

Ester Vonplon. Sing birds in sleep

-
Beim Betrachten von Fotografien stellt sich sofort die Frage, was wir sehen und wo das Motiv aufgenommen wurde. Die Bilder von Ester Vonplon überwinden diesen Reflex. Sie zeigen Schnee oder Salz in horizontlosen Aufnahmen und strahlen eine meditative Stille aus. Nun hat Ester Vonplon die Abstraktion nochmals weiterentwickelt. Der Betrachtende taucht in Farbräume ein und muss sich allein auf seine Wahrnehmung verlassen. Sehen heisst nun entdecken.
