Francis Alÿs. As Long As I’m Walking


This solo show devoted to Francis Alÿs (b. 1959) presents an overview of the artist’s work in video, painting, and drawing, with special emphasis on one of the central themes of his practice, the act of walking, from urban strolls to exploring territories and their borders.

Among his recent works figures a selection from the series Children’s Games, in which the imaginary spaces of childhood join the artist’s fictional spaces.

Curator: Nicole Schweizer
