Time – the great mistery

Time is one of the great mysteries in the history of civilization. Its definitions are many and can be found in the most diverse disci­plines, from religion to biology and eco­nomics, above all, of course, in physics, and as an well-established theme in art. Surpris­ingly, for all Switzerland’s ­reputation as a watchmaking nation, few art museums in the country have yet staged an exhibition on the subject of time that spans multiple eras and disciplines. The sensual journey of the Kunsthaus Zürich through the ­history of time therefore now takes a compre­hensive look at paintings, films, instal­lations, ­performances, and real objects such as clocks from the 1550s to the present. Even though the clock as a time-measuring instrument is the starting point: temporal perspectives such as the biological, the paleontological, and even of personal sensations, are explored in depth in this show, curated by Cathérine Hug, with works by, among others, Sinzo Aanza, Giacomo Balla, Black Qantum Futurism, Manon de Boer & George van Dam, Abraham-Louis Breguet, Pieter Claesz, ­Honoré Daumier, Jean ­Dubuffet, William Hogarth, Roni Horn, ­Monica Ursina Jäger, On ­Kawara, ­Herlinde Koelbl, Alicja Kwade, MANON, Jonathn Monk, Sophie Nys, ­Dieter Roth, Cyril ­Schäublin, Una Szeemann.
