The first institutional solo exhibition in Switzerland of the Italian-born Brazilian artist Anna Maria Maiolino (*1942), will feature her early videos, films, photographs, and texts in order to create a narrative that winds through her artistic work and life from the 1970s to the present day. Her oeuvre explores her identity as a woman, a female artist, and an immigrant, especially under the military dictatorship in Brazil from the 1960s until the 1980s.
