As part of Hauser & Wirth Somerset’s ‘GRUPPENAUSSTELLUNG’ exhibition, our Kino/Cinema transformed into an evening Filmhaus, in collaboration with Roth Bar & Grill.

Full-length feature films were screened for free every fortnight on Friday evenings between September and December 2023 to shine a light on cinema as a nurturing cultural space for creation and experimentation. Spanning a range of recent releases, artist-led productions and documentaries, the films shown included ‘Summer of Soul,’ ‘REMOTE,’ ‘Asteroid City,’ ‘A Year in a Field,’ Barbie,’ ‘Empire of Light,’ ‘Chocolat’ and ‘Elf.’ Additional family screenings were shown during October half-term and the Christmas holidays.

‘GRUPPENAUSSTELLUNG’ is a celebration of Hauser & Wirth’s Swiss heritage through a playful presentation of over 20 artists, including Phyllida Barlow, Martin Creed, Nicole Eisenman, Isa Genzken, Rodney Graham, Richard Hamilton, Mary Heilmann, Camille Henrot, Jenny Holzer, Richard Jackson, Rashid Johnson, Allison Katz, Paul McCarthy, Jason Rhoades, Pipilotti Rist, Dieter Roth, Björn Roth, Mika Rottenberg, Anri Sala, Cindy Sherman, Roman Signer, Lorna Simpson, Alina Szapocznikow, Franz West and David Zink Yi.

The multidisciplinary exhibition is inspired by the notion of a traditional Kunsthalle, conceived as a place to showcase groundbreaking art and explore contemporary issues with a broad audience. The entire site takeover provides a platform for discovery and interaction, extending to all five galleries, outdoor sculpture and a collaborative events program with the Roth Bar & Grill. The exhibition will evolve in three parts over the course of seven months, featuring immersive installations, solo presentations and iconic video works. Alongside the exhibition, the Education Lab takes its starting point from Mika Rottenberg’s commitment to environmentally sustainable creative practices, developed by the gallery’s green teams globally.

GRUPPENAUSSTELLUNG’ is on view at Hauser & Wirth Somerset through Monday 1 January 2024.
