Alia Farid (* 1985) contemplates colonial histories, cultural rituals, and the social dimension of architecture. For her first institutional presentation in Switzerland, the Kuwaiti Puerto Rican artist crafts a monumental installation of new work, bringing disparate sites in relation to each other so as to imagine a transregionalism that belies national boundaries drawn on land.

Opening: Thurs, 10.2.2022, 7 pm (subject to change)
