With the Pax Art Awards, the Art Foundation Pax in collaboration with HeK honours and promotes the media-specific practices of Swiss artists whose works employ media technologies. This exhibition presents new works of the winners of the Pax Art Awards 2019: knowbotiq, Alan Bogana and Félicien Goguey.
From the artist duo knowbotiq’s postcolonial fabulations through Félicien Goguey’s exploration of mobile phone networks and surveillance systems to Alan Bogana’s poetic and conceptual installations related to our perception of light, the three Swiss artists explore themes as diverse as they are relevant to our understanding of current dynamics in the evolution of technology and their impact on society.
The visitors will be welcomed by Sabine Himmelsbach and Peter Kappeler, CEO of Pax. Curator Boris Magrini will then present the exhibition and individual works. This will be followed by an apéro to which all visitors are cordially invited.
