The exhibition "Swiss Media Art: knowbotiq, Alan Bogana, Félicien Goguey – Pax Art Awards 2019" presents works by the winners of the Pax Art Awards 2019. These Swiss artists reflect on a number of cutting-edge topics, bringing to light pressing issues and controversial developments related to technological innovations and their impact on our society. The artist duo knowbotiq explores postcolonial fabulations, Félicien Goguey takes a critical look at mobile phone networks and surveillance systems and Alan Bogana’s poetic and conceptual installations examine our perception of reality through the medium of light.
The online tour with exhibition curator Boris Magrini is offered especially with those in mind who do not have the opportunity to visit the exhibition in person. Through the eyes of the camera you will be able to get a closer look at the works of artists who are shaping the media art scene in Switzerland. It is also an opportunity to find out more about the artistic and curatorial choices that determined the installation and the set design of the exhibition.
