Fascinating, multifaceted and profound: These are the words that come to mind when describing the Italian art that will be on view in the show Tutto starting 13 October 2018. Visitors will be treated to more than 100 works – mainly paintings and photographs – by more than 30 Italian artists represented in the Sammlung Goetz and the Museion collection. Most of the artworks date from the early 1950s to the late 1980s. Following When Now Is Minimal (2013) and The Photographic Portrait between Participation and Alienation (2017), Tutto, a show that focuses solely on Italian art, is the third cooperative project undertaken by the two collections. After the showing in Bolzano, Tutto will travel to Munich in the summer of 2019 to be presented at the Sammlung Goetz, which will thus for the first time in its history host a dialogue between its own holdings and an extensive body of works from another collection.

Museion kicks off its new season with a solo show by John Armleder entitled Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose (The more things change, the more they stay the same). After the video Endless for the media façade in 2016 and his participation in various shows between 2005 and 2007, for the Bolzano museum it is a return to a collaboration with this generation’s most influential Swiss artist.
In a career spanning more than 50 years, John Armleder (1948, Geneva, Switzerland) has developed an oeuvre that reaches beyond the customary schema of art criticism and the art establishment, blurring the dividing lines between art and architecture, art and design, art and everyday items. His multifaceted practice mingles painting, sculpture, environmental installations, performance, video, critical texts and editorial and curatorial projects. Throughout his career Armleder has brought together chance and design, high brow culture and entertainment, unsettling irony and conceptual analysis, always challenging the notion of authorship and the idea of the originality and uniqueness of the work of art. And although his body of work is extremely varied, all of his pieces are like fragments, different parts of a single, overarching project: plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose!
