With Art from and about Liechtenstein - an artistic viewpoint of Liechtenstein.

Features of landscape and social structures not only impact people’s experiences and histories, they also shape a country. State borders serve to consolidate and evoke distinctions between inside and outside, here and there. Perspectives shift, promoting dialogue between inwardly and outwardly directed prospects and views. The Principality of Liechtenstein is a modern industrial and service society that developed swiftly from having been an agrarian society.

This decisive transformation resulted in a certain tension between a rural-local culture and an international orientation, raising questions to do with identity and cliché, self-perception and external perception, tradition and innovation. “Dialog Liechtenstein”, an exhibition based on our collection, embraces works of art which address the theme of Liechtenstein as a country and the experiences and histories associated with it. Artistic perspectives from within and positions from without taken by foreign artists are placed side by side and interlinked.

The exhibits drawn from the museum’s own collection range from intaglio prints to photography and video works to expansive installations, by among others Barbara Bühler, Christo (Christo Wladimirow Jawaschew), Jeanne Faust, Gloria Friedmann, Anton Frommelt, Martin Frommelt, Olafur Gislason, Anne Marie Jehle, Andrea Kehrer, Georg Malin, Regina Marxer, Marcel Odenbach, Martin Walch, Martin Wöhrl and Susanne Zouyène.
