The symposium will focus primarily on “Martin Kippenberger. The Museum of Modern Art Syros” exhibition and, taking this as a starting point, it will extensively examine today’s criticism on institutions and museums. Thanks to the contribution of international speakers involved in the criticism of the museum institution, the symposium will explore alternative and unorthodox ways to think about its role and it will give a better insight to this less known Kippenberger’s project, a cornerstone of his artistic career.

The symposium is organised by Istituto Svizzero with MAMCO Geneva, and supported by the Estate Martin Kippenberger, Galerie Gisela Capitain, Cologne.

On the evening of Saturday 7 July, in collaboration with Montreux Jazz Artists Foundation, Montreux sous les palmes.
Concerts and performances by: Elina Duni (voice and piano), Rob Luft (guitar) and Tobias Preisig (violin).

Round tables in English. Free entry.
