Contemporary Seniors – Now Never
17 November – 8 December 2014
Zürcher Oberland Seniors Forum, Wetzikon, Switzerland
With “Nie Jetzt” or “Now Never”, König Büro opened up a series known as “Zeitgenössische Senioren”, or “Contemporary Seniors”. The idea is to offer four meetings and one exhibition visit for each event. The series builds on a participatory idea and conveys approaches and knowledge to workshop participants about positions in contemporary Swiss art. Here participants’ sight is taken into account in the course content. The focus is on the collaborative examination of ways of interpreting individual works. Young female artists are invited to present two of their works. This forms the starting point for a discussion with questions and responses from participants.
