Press Release
The Grass is Always Greener on the Other Side
A Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein exhibition
curated by Kunstverein Schichtwechsel
3 July – 22 November 2015
37 artists from Liechtenstein, Iceland, Luxembourg and Montenegro focus on the reality of small
European states and how they are perceived by others.
The world is on the move, driven by the idea that things are better elsewhere. Some people
leave their homes in search of education, work or a better life. Others travel out of interest, a
thirst for adventure or to do their bit for a better world.
At the exhibition The Grass is Always Greener on the Other Side, 37 artists aged between 25
and 45 inquire how a small state presents itself, whether it can play a model role, and what
effects migration and tourism have. The aim of the show is to draw a critical comparison
between the small states and, at the same time, to try to find inspiring unique features.
As of 29 August, the artworks will be joined by the kuska exhibition on development
cooperation. To improve the conditions of life in „developing countries“, people, money and
goods move around the globe. But how does development cooperation function? What
happens with donations? Have we really reduced global poverty when every eighth person is
still starving today?
The exhibition is a production of Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein, curated by Laura Hilti, Luis Hilti,
Annett Höland and Flurina Seger, Kunstverein Schichtwechsel.
It is supported by: ArsRhenia – Stiftung zur überregionalen Förderung von Kunst und Kultur,
RHW Stiftung, EU Erasmus+ YOUTH IN ACTION programme, MariaMarina Foundation, Karl
Mayer Stiftung, LED Liechtensteinischer Entwicklungsdienst. Kunstverein Schichtwechsel is
supported by Kulturstiftung Liechtenstein.
Admission to the exhibition is free of charge.
