Trip: Swiss

The purpose of this trip was to further study the work methodology of Harald Szeemann. We spent 5 days in Szeemann’s archive gathering information concerning the questions of his Agency for Sriritual Guestwork, his archive in Fabbrica Rossa (Pink Factory) and two exhibitions curated by Szeemann: Documenta 5 in 1972, Kassel, and Lyon Biennale L’Autre (The Other) in 1997.

During this trip we met and interviewed Harald Szeemann’s wife Ingeborg Lucher, his daughter Una Szeemann, Architect Christoph Zurcher (whom Szeemann worked with since the beginning of his career), Curator Tobia Bezzola (of Kunsthaus Zurich), and Szeemann’s last assistant Juliette Duca-Fierz (who worked with him during 7 years).

We also visited Monte Verita museum in Ascona, where the part of the objects of the exhibition of the same title curated by Szeemann in 1978 can be seen. He considered this exhibition be a part his museum of obsessions.
