le Définitif – c’est le Provisoire New presentation of Museum Tinguely’s collection
DIY art, limelight, broken glass – in Jean Tinguely’s multi-facetted oeuvre one encounters everything from machine performances to multisensory spectacles to critiques of consumer culture. Works and documents show his early successes, theatre projects and correspondence. Playfully interactive elements guide the audience through the exhibition, including the rarely-shown bottle smasher Rotozaza No. 2 that will be put into action by the restoration team for interested visitors. In addition, insights are offered into restoration processes and into the materiality and functioning of the works.
