After 60 years, and with its 13th exhibition, the foundation Stiftung Schweizerische Plastikausstellung Biel has invited the Swiss artist Thomas Hirschhorn and curator Kathleen Bühler to Biel.
Dedicated to the writer Robert Walser and his works, Thomas Hirschhorn sets up a non-exclusive experience with everybody welcome in the public space. For the first time one of the so-called “Presence and Production” projects by Thomas Hirschhorn takes place in Switzerland. For a period of three months and as in his earlier projects, the Swiss artist, who to date has radically and continuously dealt with art in public space, will be continuously present to initiate, ignite and accompany the diverse encounters with Robert Walser in Biel/Bienne.
Meet with Robert Walser in readings, walks, workshops, children's programme, forum, lectures and theatre (during 12 weeks / 87 days) – from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Around 200 citizens from Biel, clubs, institutions, artists, writers, experts and city originals all form a part of this grand project.
From 15 Jun 2019 to 8 Sep 2019
