The art of Albert Oehlen challenges the medium of painting, and our understanding of it. The theory and education program of his exhibition An Old Painting in Spirit seeks to challenge the format of the guided tour, which has been declared dead and undying at once in a similar way to painting. Thus we will talk while taking a walk with the artist, a number of special guests, our education team and – last but not least – our visitors.

Arthur Fink is an Art Historian and independent Curator Kunsthistoriker. He lives and works in Zurich.

Emil Michael Klein (b. 1982) makes drawings, prints and paintings. His drawings, a cross between collage and abstract watercolours, are reworked with ink, lacquer and felt pens. Originally trained as a traditional wood carver, the artist makes his frames and supports by hand, thereby addressing the question of the classical framed picture and the expanded field of painting. He extends the two dimensionality of his works through a combination of superimposed layers, surfaces and transparency, creating objects characterized by a distinct idiom of their own.
