The collection of the migros museum of contemporary art Zuric, “Theatre of the World” exhibition will be held at the Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein from May 27th  – September 4th.

The exhibition at the Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein is based on the motif of the ‘Theatre of the World’, inspired by the piece of the same name by German concept artist Hanne Darboven. The selection of works and the arrangement of the exhibition aim to address the theme in a manner that is both unforced and sensual. The objective is to engage what at first sight seem like scarcely compatible works in a fruitful dialogue by the use of the ‘Theatre of the World’ theme so that their interplay links them into a large associative narrative.

On show will be works by John Baldessari, Maurizio Cattelan, Sylvie Fleury, Gilbert & George, Douglas Gordon, Fabrice Gygi, Thomas Hirschhorn, Jannis Kounellis, Juan Muñoz, Bruce Nauman, Ugo Rondinone, Markus Schinwald, Katja Strunz, and others.
