Manifesta 11

We are happy to announce our artists AMALIA PICA and JEREMY SHAW are participating in the historical exhibition of the MANIFESTA 11 in Zurich, Switzerland, 11.06. - 18.09.2016.

“What do you want to be when you grow up?” From early childhood on, work is thought of as something of essential importance for personal desires. The profession we select plays a central role in the development of our identity, in how we speak, behave and relate to other people. In a highly complex city such as Zurich, which is considered one of the leading financial and economic metropoles of the world, human working conditions are complex. Therefore, they are the starting point for the curatorial concept: “What do you do for money?” 

Next to the Joint Ventures, the new artistic productions, which are being created in a vibrant process of cooperation between artists and hosts, the curated section of Manifesta 11 brings together artistic positions from the past and the present to examine how work can be the subject of artistic reflection. At the same time, the selected works illuminate the concrete working conditions under which art is produced. Where does the artist, with his or her various options, stand in the global collection society. Is he or she instrumentalised? 

The Historical Exhibition: Sites Under Construction gathers artworks and non-art- specific materials from the past fifty years into different groupings. The show, co- curated by Francesca Gavin, is divided into eleven chambers. These are inspired by the intersections between private and public, the personal and the professional, and examine how and why artists portray the working process and relations that they face and engage in.
