Exhibition dedicated to the archive of Kunsthalle Bern. It forms part of the efforts to enrich historical narratives about and around the institution that are currently taking place in the context of its jubilee in 2018. The exhibition lays emphasis on the cultural environment in which the Kunsthalle is located during the Second World War, and looks into how it grows out of this period. The selected documents aim at opening a conversation about the idea of a cultural modernity, appropriated by diverse protagonists – from individual artists to communities to nations.
