July to November 2019
Roth Bar at Tinguely

by Dieter Roth/Björn Roth/Oddur Roth/Einar Roth/Bjarni Grimsson

Until November 2019, the Museum Tinguely presented the extraordinary Roth Bar. First conceived by Dieter Roth together with his son Björn in the early 1980s, the Bars are dynamic, ever-changing installations that also represent a constant within the Roths’ cross-generational practice. The bar, comprised of scavenged materials, is a central motif in Dieter Roth’s oeuvre. The Roth Bar has been shown and operated in various exhibitions since 2005, most recently in Zurich in 2015 and subsequently at Hotel Les Trois Rois (Basel).

The Roth Bar was bookable for exclusive evening events: Drinks, food, guided tours of the museum and the exhibition on request, for groups from 20 to 40 people. The Roth Bar is run by the team of Bistro «Chez Jeannot»
