MARKUS RAETZ. oui non si no yes no 08.09.2023 - 25.02.2024
The Museum of Fine Arts Bern has dedicated an extensive posthumous retrospective to the artist Markus Raetz, who died in 2020. The exhibition focuses primarily on the three-dimensional works and mobiles of the Swiss artist.
The exhibition showcases key pieces from various museum and private collections. It is divided up into thematic groups and also enables numerous cross-references, characteristic of the multifaceted work of the artist since the 1960s. On the one hand, the exhibition follows the artistic development of Raetz. On the other hand, it qualifies the concept of a strict chronology, as one of the special features of his work is the linking of formal, conceptual and content-related relationships between pieces from different times.
