Throughout the summer, the Museum Tinguely celebrates performance art with the exhibition “Bang Bang – translocal hi:stories of performance art”. At the centre of this process-oriented exhibition is the Swiss performance art scene, its actors and networks, although the programme will be international in character. “Bang Bang” traces the development of performance art and redraws the contours of this constantly evolving discipline. As a performance art festival, “Bang Bang” is divided into seven thematic chapters, combining live performances, discussions and presentations involving the public, artists, scholars and the museum. Each of these thematic chapters thus forms a framework for the exhibition in its own way.
In the course of the summer, three artistic positions will be shown in their own exhibition spaces in the area of the main exhibition, alternating on a monthly basis:
Porte Rouge | Joa Iselin, Christoph Ranzenhofer.
Sarina Scheidegger, Participants: Jimena Croceri, Ariane Koch, Kambiz Shafei, Alexandra Stähli, Anina Ung and Stingray Editions.
