The museum between light and shadow
27/09/2014 – 11/01/2015
Museion, Bolzano, Italie
The exhibition Soleil politique invites the visitor to follow
an itinerary that begins, immediately upon entering the Museion, at the
very heart of the works on exhibit, before extending out into the
city. The first curatorial decision consists of overturning the
hierarchy that traditionally separates the reception area from the
lofty content beyond, the former at the ground floor of the building,
the latter above. This spatial undertaking seeks to expand the use of
the museum’s interior to include its architecture as an integral part
of the exhibition experience. Employing space in this way contrasts
with the rules upheld by the traditional art museum or places of
worship that prepare access to their contents in successive stages.
The fourth and last floor of the museum, transformed into a belvedere,
offers a panoramic view of the city that can be contemplated with
reference points from the exhibition in mind. From here, the visit
continues in the city itself, throughout its streets, avenues and
bridges, and in a number of the city’s buildings that form an integral
part of the exhibition.
Soleil politique thus examines the role of the museum in the urban
environment by looking back at the Museion’s history and mission from
the perspective of artists in all disciplines: architects, filmmakers,
performers, musicians, composers, etc. The exhibition includes models,
sculptures, short films, documents and other medium, from major and
well-known artists, along with the participation of lesser-known
