Six to nine temporary exhibitions a year, consistently conceived according to clear programmatic perspectives, make Museum Haus Konstruktiv unique within the cultural landscape. Oriented toward demonstrating the links that connect the pioneers of constructivist-concrete and conceptual art with international contemporary art, these exhibitions bring renowned positions, new positions, and rediscovered historical positions into a dialog with contemporary artists’ approaches today. The art-historical background comprises Russian constructivism and the constructivist-concrete stimuli of 1920s and 1930s, including the Bauhaus, kinetic art, op art and 1960s American minimal art, 1960s conceptual art, which arose from the tendency toward reduction that all of the above have in common.
Visitors can see “The Rockefeller Dining Room” by Fritz Glarner in the permanent collection: a walk-through painting based on the “relational painting” concept and a shining example of modernist interior design.
