A Portrait of a Young Building as an Artist by Artists is an exhibition curated by 12 art students from the F+F School of Art and Design. Occupying an empty gallery space on the second floor of the Löwenbräu, the students create a ‘portrait’ of the building by inviting all the artists currently working and showing in the Löwenbrau, including themselves, to contribute an art work. They will build an eccentric landscape from the art works offered by those who wish to participate, installing them on the cut carpet pieces left over from the recent Larry Bell exhibition at Hauser and Wirth Gallery, Zürich.
art+argument is a forum for discussing culture where the unspeakable may be said. Four cultural experts in two opposing teams debate and discuss a motion that they have been assigned. Each participant has been given a position opposing or defending the motion, and each has five minutes to argue their case uninterrupted. Thereafter the speakers challenge each other, and the audience may in turn question the speakers. The event ends with a vote for the more persuasive team. Each speaker must play his or her assigned role, regardless of whether they agree or not. Speakers benefit from temporary immunity: what they say during the debate is not necessarily their opinion and they cannot be held to their word afterwards.
