2/5 Guided tour through the exhibition ‹Beton› (D)

CANCELLED - 6 PM, German

Guided tour through the current exhibition ‹Beton› with curator Yuma Shinohara.

Vilified by some, adored by others – one thing is certain: concrete is everywhere. But what do we actually talk about when we talk about this divisive material? From fluid to solid, hidden to exposed, component to monolith – concrete is something with many forms and transformations, as many associations as applications.
This exhibition presents nine ways of understanding concrete, bringing together, among others, original drawings, models, and photographs from the three main architecture archives in Switzerland in order to illuminate this complex and critical material.
