Keep the Secret
Cultural Affairs of the Embassy of Switzerland in the United Kingdom wrote:
"Probably one of the most lively and innovative art galleries in Switzerland, Neue Galerie literally breaks with boundaries and moves to London for one month, presenting an exhibition of contemporary Swiss artists dealing with a highly sensitive subject."
ThoughtsAt a time when personal data is stored on massive servers somewhere in no- man’s land, when even whilst buying a packet of chewing gum our behaviour is recorded and analyzed, a time when Switzerland’s Bank Secrecy Act is to be eliminated to make room for a global system of control, one might wish to reverse time and experience how it felt when one could have a date or meet one’s new work colleague not through Google in the first instance but rather in person. For a moment in time, Neue Galerie takes us back to that place, where secrets and riddles were part of our daily lives.
InformationThe exhibition took place from April 23 to May 23, 2009 on Vyner Street, East End, London.
