BERN.- The Kunstmuseum Bern is putting on a large retrospective of Albert Anker’s manifold oeuvre to commemorate the centenary of this key Swiss artist’s death. The exhibition will take up several themes representative for Anker’s work and demonstrate how exceptional he was as a painter. Video works by Chantal Michel, a performance and media artist who lives in Bern, enhance the presentation. A trigger for this exhibition was the immensely popular Anker show that was organized by the Kunstmuseum Bern in 2007-2008 for four Japanese Museums. The works on show comprise paintings, drawings, watercolors, and faiences. The exhibition is undoubtedly a highlight in the year of celebrations concerning the centenary of Anker’s death.
