Andrea Blum (b. 1950 in New York) is a New York based artist whose work addresses the relationship of the social/political world to the private psychological one. Her approach is to zoom in and out of the conditions which organize us as a culture, thereby hoping to affect us as individuals.

Afterglow

Opening: Thursday 17 September, 6.30 pm
 
With artists from Switzerland and abroad, the focus of the group exhibition is on expansive video installations that have used the medium in an innovative way from the 1970s onward and continue to have a high impact or resonance to this day. By video installations we mean works that significantly integrate the physical space as well as elements from the video narrative, and which are also able to physically involve visitors. The exhibition is curated by Ines Goldbach and Käthe Walser.
