The outcome of an examination of the collection of the Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein, and thus the history of the Museum, by four different contemporary artists.
Published on the occasion of the exhibition C4
held at Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein this book documents a broad investigation and an exhibition conceived by Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein's Director Letizia Ragaglia. C4
consists of an exhibition featuring four separate displays: Nazgol Ansarinia, Mercedes Azpilicueta, Invernomuto
, and Diamond Stingily are invited to engage with the Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein's collection in their presentation. As Ragaglia writes in her essay, "these artists all share a special approach to storytelling: by reactivating memories, blending facts and reconstructions, questioning images and events, the works on show open up a new perspective on historical time so as to take an active role in interpreting the present. In the course of their various careers, these artists have explored themes of difference, marginalization, the history of subcultures, and the effects of urban transformations on mental and physical space. Biographical elements, situations connected with their own history, are interwoven with a collective, social memory. The "C" in the title of the exhibition refers to the "collection" as the basis and starting point, but the "C" has other connotations as well: a productive "contamination" among the artists, between their works and works from the collection; "cooperation"—a multiplicity of voices in the production of the show that becomes visible and that also embodies a stance; "crossover"—disciplines such as sound and performance play a major part."
