Preview: Exhibition tour in the Donjon 2024


May 05, 2024 – October 31, 2024

Object “Albaillella IV” by Arnold Annen

Thun Castle – the museum castle, invites you to discover the world of contemporary Swiss ceramic art in its permanent exhibition in the Donjon. Together with Swissceramics, the Swiss Ceramics Association, it presents works of art by nationally significant ceramists at selected locations.

Under the striking theme of “Cancel Culture – From Yesterday to Tomorrow”, the exhibition course shows the result of a national competition in which artists were invited to approach the term “Cancel Culture”. This English term, which can be roughly translated as “cancel culture”, refers to the phenomenon of people or organizations having their support withdrawn in order to damage their reputation, prevent their professional activity or the reception of their work, or to minimize their presence in the media. A particular focus here is on the topic of “memory” – how do we remember what was? Who should be remembered? These are questions that historical museums ask themselves every day in their work.

The artworks resulting from this process therefore take up a recurring motif of the Historisches Museum Thun – historical upheaval, the selection and examination of historical moments, political constellations and historical personalities and actors. They offer profound reflections and artistic interpretations of this complex theme, captured in the fragile beauty of ceramics. As part of this exhibition, Thun Castle will be the vibrant venue for a wide range of ceramic-related events.

The exhibition at Thun Castle presents the works of 15 artists and selected objects by students from the three ceramics schools, who interpret the theme in very individual ways.

We cordially invite you to visit Thun Castle. Immerse yourself in the fascinating world of ceramics, experience the artistic exploration of the “Cancel Culture” theme and be inspired by the diversity and creativity of the works on display.
