Kader Attia

Kunsthaus Zürich , Heimplatz 1, 8001 Zürich
CHF 16.–/11.– (concessions and groups). Free admission for members and children and young people under the age of 17.
Kader Attia was born to Algerian parents in a suburb north of Paris in 1970. The experience of living in two cultures forms the basis for his artistic practice, and his work deals with Europe and the western world’s colonial past and its consequences.

Kader Attia’s multifaceted output encompasses sculptures, installations, photos and videos that combine high aesthetic quality with profoundly ethical concerns. They reflect his determination to address the crises and the pressing social policy issues of our times.

Following various high-profile international appearances by the artist, the Kunsthaus Zürich becomes the first institution in German-speaking Switzerland to devote a solo exhibition to Kader Attia. At its centre is a new work that he is creating specially for the Kunsthaus. The exhibition is accompanied by an extensive discourse programme.
