Kunsthaus Zürich

Special display: War and Peace

7 September 2018 – 6 January 2019, 1st floor

The special display entitled ‘War and Peace’ brings together important works from the Kunsthaus collection from 1495 to 2015. Large-format paintings by Ferdinand Hodler and Arnold Böcklin appear alongside the works of Jan van de Capelle, Robert Zünd, Alberto Giacometti and Helen Dahm. Artists such as Kader Attia and Peter Fischli and David Weiss add a contemporary perspective that focuses on the understanding of the self and the other – an issue of great topical relevance that can already be seen at work in Gauguin and in Francesco Napoletano’s Madonna and Child from 1495–1500.
