* Art in Winterthur has a new name.
The Kunstmuseum Winterthur, the Museum Oskar Reinhart and the Villa Flora are now called: Kunst Museum Winterthur.
The museum will pursue its traditions in regard to content, intensify the exchange between the collections and present them in changing constellations. Ferdinand Hodler – Alberto Giacometti. An Encounter is an exhibition which illustrates this development. For the first time ever, the two prevailing icons of Swiss modern art will meet one another in a special exhibition. At the same time, works from the two Winterthur collections will engage in dialogue. In addition, presentations by contemporary women artists such as Katinka Bock and Karin Sander will connect the two houses. In a similar way, the thematic exhibitions Occupying Spaces: Works by Women Sculptors, as well as Women: Images of Women through the Centuries and Dutch Mountains link the two houses at the level of content. As a fixed appointment, the annual exhibition in December will mark the end of the year: Focus will show works by local artists from Winterthur and its surroundings.
