«We converted the gallery space in Zurich over the winter. In addition to new workspaces for the architecture office, a small «Forum» has been created. In it, we will exhibit an important piece of art two or three times a year. This piece will be discussed with art historians at a public event.
The consideration of art and its mediation has to do with concentration and time for contemplation. In a fast-paced age of mass consumption, we want to bring this decelerated examination of art back into focus.
We hope thereby to pursue an enriching and at the same time modest direction of art education. The time when I ran the gallery as an art «business» - over 45 years - was very enriching and I never would want to miss it. But it's time to go new ways.»
