The exhibition "Piecework" does not show broken cups, but Japanese tea bowls patched with gold.
In the exhibition "Stückwerk" no broken cups are shown, but Japanese tea bowls patched with gold. Sometimes objects that have been broken down into parts, repaired or put together tell more exciting stories and are more valuable than supposedly perfect objects because of their lines of separation and connection. For example, the power figures from the Congo, which consist of umpteen parts. Participants should bring broken or mended teacups or other objects and can join in the conversation about works in and out of pieces.With Director Anna Schmid, Exhibition Assistant Silvia Greber and Sabine Rotach, Head of Education and Outreach.
