In 2018 the Museum of Art and History benefited from a significant donation of works by the Turkish artist Burhan Doğançay (1929-2013)represented in the largest international museums.
More than fifty of these works (drawings and painting) are presented in this new M-sized exhibition. They all belong to the “Walls of Israel” series created in 1975.
The artist is interested on urban walls since the mid-1960sbut it was only in 1975 with his trip to Israel that he began his somewhat crazy “Walls of the World” project: a unique archive comprising around 30,000 photographs of walls taken in 114 countries over the course of his career.
This material and the sketches he makes on site serve as the basis for his graphic and painted work which represents, reframes, reworks and reinterprets walls from the four corners of the world, highlighting common aspirations and a universal language.
The exhibition is the subject of a catalog in collaboration with the Kunst Museum in Winterthur which will host a second stage of the exhibition in 2024.
