Like a bubble in water, it rises to the surface and makes a judgement within seconds: when we meet a person for the first time, enter an unfamiliar room or struggle to find the right words in a conversation. Like an inner compass, intuition shows us the direction, even though we are not always aware of the reason.
The exhibition explores this inward look and brings together for the first time two collections of Swiss contemporary art: the collection of Elisabeth and Peter Bosshard and that of the architect and gallery owner Bob Gysin and his wife Kathrin Gysin. Both couples accompanied the work of selected artists for decades, were on friendly terms with them and also relied on their intuition when collecting.
With works by Klaus Born, Matthias Bosshart, Christoph Brünggel, Stéphane Brunner, Martin Disler, Urs Frei, Dominique Lämmli, Bessie Nager, Flavio Paolucci, Carmen Perrin, Eva-Maria Pfaffen, Adrian Schiess, Cécile Wick, Andrea Wolfensberger.
