The first monographic exhibition hosted by the MASI is dedicated to Markus Raetz, one of the protagonists of the Swiss contemporary art scene. Realized in collaboration with the Kunstmuseum Bern and the Musée Jenisch of Vevey, were it was shown in 2014.The exhibition in Lugano acquires particular significance: it is the artist's first solo exhibition in the Canton Ticino and it includes a new large–scale and hitherto unseen installation titled "Chambre de lecture". More than 150 art works retrace Raetz's fascinating career, from the Seventies until now, and thus the themes he has explored: first of all the perception phenomena which he investigates through several recurring subjects, like words, landscapes, views, physiognomies and faces.Chambre de lecturePresented in a dedicated and separate space this work serves as an ideal starting point from which to discover the poetics of Markus Raetz. Observing the movement of the heads may cause one to smile, but also offers foods for thought: as is often the case in Markus Raetz's works, the transition from the more universal dimension to the more intimate one of consumption is seamless.
