Museum Haus Konstruktiv

Situated in the heart of Zurich, Museum Haus Konstruktiv is one of the leading galleries in the Swiss cultural landscape. The still-thriving mindset of the Zurich Concretists – Max Bill, Richard Paul Lohse, Verena Loewensberg and Camille Graeser – and the stimuli of intellectually akin conceptual art constitute the notional basis for the exhibitions and their accompanying events.
Six to nine temporary exhibitions a year, consistently conceived according to clear programmatic perspectives, make Museum Haus Konstruktiv unique within the cultural landscape.
The Rockefeller Dining Room (1963/64), conceived and implemented in New York by Swiss artist Fitz Glarner for Nelson A. Rockefeller and his wife, is a permanent installation and simultaneously the centerpiece of the collection. This walk-through painting is a prime example of a so-called "Relational Painting."

OLIVIER MOSSET

-

More

In the summer, Museum Haus Konstruktiv will pay tribute to Olivier Mosset (b. 1943). The artist is considered one of the most radical representatives of contemporary painting. Using the questions of “What is painting” and “How does it work” as a starting point, he created a diverse oeuvre consisting of monochrome and abstract geometric works that rejects any kind of mystifying interpretation.

KIRSTINE ROEPSTORFF

More

In her solo exhibition, Kirstine Roepstorff (b. 1972) will explore darkness and its role in the formation of meaning. Although most often associated with the unknown and the uncanny, for Roepstorff darkness does not have any negative connotations. At Museum Haus Konstruktiv, she will build an installation that leads visitors from the darkness to the light.
