A COOPERATIVE PROJECT BETWEEN THE KUNSTMUSEUM BERN AND DAMPFZENTRALE BERN
Fifty years after 1968 the République Géniale – an idea of Robert Filliou’s – was rediscovered. During this time of change, Filliou, a French Fluxus artist, came up with a new concept of art and art training that did not focus on individual talent but on the genius natural to each of us. The Kunstmuseum too is going through a period of redefining itself and is therefore again proclaiming the république géniale. It will continue on with Filliou’s approaches by means of a continually altering exhibition project involving art collectives, an interdisciplinary performative program, and reflective discussions on various relevant themes.
U5 is excited to be part of the research team „17 Volcanoes“, a research project on tourism and urbanization by Philip Ursprung & Alex Lehnerer for Singapore ETH-Centre/Future Cities Laboratory. The project runs from 2015 - 2018.
