Augusto Giacometti. Freiheit | Auftrag

The exhibition reveals the field of tension in which the artist and cultural politician moved productively throughout his life.

The comprehensive presentation draws attention to a multifaceted artistic personality whose work is one of the highlights of art in the first half of the 20th century. The exhibition, realized in co-curation with the Swiss Institute for Art Research, explores the relationship between free creation and commissioned art along the axes of "freedom" and "commission" and reveals the field of tension in which Augusto Giacometti (1877-1947) moved productively throughout his life as an artist and cultural politician.

In cooperation with the Swiss Institute for Art Research (SIK-ISEA)
