A sequence of virtual tours of galleries, museums to cultural institutions from around the world led by docents, curators, and directors. We dive into the adventures and explorations of unfamiliar worlds and bring them into focus. Take a walk-through exhibitions, permanent collections and studios, from tales of the works and sharing the voices of the artists, to techniques, and history.

Border Crossings North and South Korean Art from the Sigg Collection, at Kunstmuseum Bern, with Kathleen Bühler
Thursday 20 May 2021, 3pm
Chief Curator Dr. Kathleen Bühler leads us through this exhibition which allows the public to take a close look at the Korean Peninsula, divided since 1953. A 250-kilometre border of barbed-wire fences and tank barriers divides Korea into two states that could not be more different. The art made concurrently in both states is also divergent. In the North a socialist-realist tradition of painting is cultivated, while in the South a vital contemporary art scene makes use of a diverse range of pictorial and media languages in order to serve their concerns. These contrasting views of the world enter into a dialogue in the exhibition, and invite the visitor to approach both the history and the present of Korea.
