The exhibition by the collective temporary.arrangement seeks to illustrate – fragmentarily – and reinterpret the Alps. The works on show range from kitsch to handcraft and combine the natural and the artificial, while making references to thousand-year-old myths, legends, and sagas. Recurring symbols and narratives form the backbone to the exhibition and the notion of homeland is addressed from a range of perspectives. In a world, in which religion and popular beliefs appear to play an ever diminishing role, ALPEN builds bridges with the here and now. As subjects; melting glaciers, spiritual sites, and the rediscovery of our relationship with nature couldn’t be more contemporary. The exhibition is a cooperative transalpine project by Lino Gasparitsch (Germany), Bettina Willnauer (Austria), and Anna Zimmermann (Switzerland).
