Kunsthalle Palazzo

08 Jun 201913 Oct 2019

Kunsthalle Palazzo presents the exhibition Imago to commemorate the winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature 1919, Carl Spitteler.

The exhibition consists of three sections: the first section Geschichtsbilder (About history) offers the context of the time of the Swiss writer and searches for contemporary voices; the second section Frauenbilder (About women) follows his novel «Imago» and negotiates the image of women today; the third part Spiegelbilder (Reflections) reflects the thoughts of Spitteler with four contemporary artists.
