Anke Zoderer


On the 11th edition of «neue räume»

The well-known Swiss artist Beat Zoderer designed the key visuals of the international interior design exhibition. He is also showing some of his latest work in a special exhibition. Beat Zoderer (*1955 in Zurich) has been working as an independent artist since 1979. Scholarships from the city of Zurich were followed by two studio grants for Genoa in 1986 and New York in 1988. In 1995, he was awarded the Manor Art Prize, and in 1998, he received an award from the Max Bill/Georges Vantongerloo Foundation Zumikon. 

His current solo exhibitions include 2021 «Visuelle Interference» at Kunsthalle Weisshaupt in Ulm, Germany, and 2022 «Less and More» at Museum Voorlinden in Wassenaar, Netherlands.  With his distinctive objects, paintings, and installations, Beat Zoderer is one of the leading artists on the Swiss art scene and has made a name for himself internationally. Inconspicuous everyday objects and materials from the hardware store form the components from which he combines his filigree works. PVC, building boards, rubber bands, metal strips, or poured-out Styrofoam balls merge into radical optical structures, that, upon closer inspection, surprise the viewer with their seemingly effortless lightness. Playing with the questioning of visual conventions makes his art surprising and engaging.

Works such as paintings and sculptures can be seen as part of «neue räume 22».

HFTG - The measure of things

The HFTG Zug is exploring and taking measures

We are surrounded by things, by so many - a whole mass of things. Some are important tools for us, we can hardly do without them. Others would be unnecessary. We still appreciate them, they make our lives sweeter and then there are things around us of no practical use, they are just there, since sometime, and they mean a lot to us. We are emotionally attached to them, they are precious to us!

Together with the audience and selected guests, the HFTG Zug explores the measure of things, weighs up the value we attach to them and takes action.
