Contacts & Details
Counter Space is an independent exhibition and project space in Zürich which aims to present the use of temporary and process-like methods in artistic work. The intention is to show chosen glimpses and fragments of work, through a cross-generational approach.
Counter Space strives to ask a range of questions:
“How do we imagine an art space that is close to artistic practice? How can we reduce the pressure to produce that characterizes the entertainment society? Hence: how to create new cultural and artistic connections and fields for experimentation?”
The objective is to find criteria for the definition of an art space that is close to practice and to put them in to a current discourse. Counter Space provides artists with an experimental platform for tentative forms, sketchy actions and ambiguous statements.
Angelo Romano, curator, and Tashi Brauen, artist, founded the exhibition space Counter Space in 2013. They live and work in Zurich. Angelo Romano has realized projects in Poland, China and Switzerland. Tashi Brauen has shown his photographic work in Switzerland, the United States, and France. Linda Jensen, curator, so far realized projects in Hong Kong, Paris and Copenhagen. She joined the team in November 2014, along with Yasmin Kiss, who is in charge of Research & Editing and Vicenta Rodrigo-Jimènez, who is in charge of Administration.
