This group exhibition marks the start of the 75th anniversary of the Kunstverein, which was founded in Zurich in 1948. "Staging the Ordinary" brings together different artistic positions that deal with central themes of staging. This includes the experimentation with certain actions in space and time, which become publicly perceptible in the staged act of performance. In addition to the presentation of everyday objects, the spectacle that takes place on a theatre stage, for example, also becomes a theme. The "spectacle"¹ is not understood in the negative connotation of Guy Debord's famous essay "The Society of the Spectacle"², but rather as "theatre of everyday life" . The exhibition presents new works by Ulla von Brandenburg, Charlotte Herzig, Izidora I LETHE, Zilla Leutenegger, Caro Niederer and Roman Signer.
