Open Sesame! Anker, Hodler, Segantini... Masterpieces from the Foundation for Art, Culture and History at the Museum of Fine Arts Berne
The Kunstmuseum Bern is showing over 140 works of Swiss art dating from the 18th century up to modern times. They belong to the vast collection of the Foundation for Art, Culture and History, which was established in 1980 by the Winterthur patron of the arts Bruno Stefanini. Among other paintings, the exhibition is showcasing works by Cuno Amiet, Albert Anker, Arnold Böcklin, Alexandre Calame, Henry Fuseli, Giovanni and Augusto Giacometti, Ferdinand Hodler, Giovanni Segantini and Félix Vallotton. The show is structured thematically while integrating a number of historical items as well—for example the largest cluster of rock crystal ever to be found in Switzerland or the riding habit of the Empress Elizabeth of Austria and Queen of Hungary, popularly known as Sisi. The exhibition is, for the very first time, presenting a comprehensive view of the wonderful jewels tucked away in the Foundation’s veritable treasure vault.

Helmhaus Zurich presents !Mediengruppe Bitnik "Delivery for Mr. Assange" and Christian Waldvogel "unknown"
One exhibition floods a large space in the Helmhaus; the other offers access to one of the world’s most carefully guarded places. Helmhaus Zürich presents two separate exhibitions by artists from Zurich, each with a spectacular take on life’s realities. Christian Waldvogel has poured a nutrient broth on an area of 150 square metres. In the course of the exhibition budding growth will appear, as it once did when the world was young. !Mediengruppe Bitnik have reconstructed Julian Assange’s office at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London. The founder of WikiLeaks has not left the Embassy since June 2012. The collective gives the lie to any claims that art shows no interest in the NSA surveillance scandal.
