Science meets imagination, culture meets existentialism. In the Kunstmuseum Appenzell and the Kunsthalle Ziegelhütte Appenzell, 10 women artists confront the powerlessness of the moment with the power of the creative. Judith Albert, Miriam Cahn, Valérie Favre, Asi Föcker, Agnès Geoffray, Roswitha Gobbo, Diana Michener, Martina Morger, Suzanne Treister, Birgit Widmer dare to tell the grand narrative of love, feminism, knowledge, war, existence, humour, memory, dream, cosmos, landscape, politics, light and death in ten „spatial images „.
The exhibition „R.A.W“, inspired by the satirical-absurd anti-war novel „The Sirens of Titan“ published by Kurt Vonnegut in 1959, lets existential poetic voices ring out against the nonsense of contemporary history.
