The exhibition format Collection on Display showcases selected works from the collection of the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst.Titled

Experimental Arrangements, the new installation gathers works that are designed as test assemblies or (pseudo-scientific) experiments, or visualize and contemplate the production and classification of knowledge. Artistic practices work with, and reflect on, new scientific insight, technological progress, the characteristics of highly specialized materials, as well as man’s double role as an object as study and researcher. Many of the works on display focus on the significance of the (mimetic) image as a form of exposition and the question of the (re)presentation or (re)interpretation of "existing" utopias. All works are recent acquisitions and on view in the museum for the first time. The arrangement of exhibits from the collection thus becomes an experimental setup that generates a narrative or brings certain perspectives into focus.
