This group exhibition looks at how art deals with both the major catastrophes that strike communities, as well as personal tragedies, and the role art can play in recovery. Among other prominent artists, a large-scale installation by Swiss artist Thomas Hirschhorn constitutes one of the main works presented by the exhibition. Works by Swiss artists Miriam Cahn and Christoph Draeger are featured as well.
