On Saturday, January 16, we will convene at the pumping station in the middle of the exhibition Building Modern Bodies to warm up with its curator Jörg Scheller, and three special guests from the fields of sports and science – or rather “body art”: the president of the Swiss Bodybuilding- and Fitness Association, Beat Geser; the curator and bodybuilder Agnes Josuran, and the sports scholar Mischa Kläber. Together – and with us –, they will discuss the art of bodybuilding and our exhibition.

Beat Geser is the President of the Swiss Bodybuilding- and Fitness Association, and a bodybuilder himself. In 2009 he was awarded Swiss Champion in Classic Bodybuilding.

Agnes Jorusan is a bodybuilder, and completed the Master of Advanced Studies Curating at Zurich University of the Arts. In 2015 she received the third prize at the Swiss Bodybuilding Championships.

Mischa Kläber is research associate at the Institute of Sports Science at the Technical University of Darmstadt, and und Head of the Department „Prevention Strategies and Health Management“ at the German Olympic Sports Confederation.
