Mathias Pfund. Laughing Stock

-
The exhibition Laughing Stock gives carte blanche to the artist Mathias Pfund, who has chosen to work with the museum's extant collections by re-hanging one of the upper floor spaces. His vision explores the "École du gris", or school of grey painting, argued by some to have flourished in La Chaux-de-Fonds between the two world wars.
