11. December 2011 – 23. January 2012
The Kunstmuseum Thun annually presents an overview of the artistic creation in the region. So far this was done in the framework of the exhibition Hofstettenstrasse.
The Hofstettenstrasse has been a regular programme of the Kunstmuseum Thun for a decade. Under the new name Cantonale Berne Jura – the Christmas Exhibition, it will be presented for the first time as a cantonal annual exhibition together with other institutions. This will create a new cultural exchange among the regions, which will benefit all involved parties - artists and organisers. Distributed among various art galleries and museums, the Cantonale Berne Jura will provide the artists with an important and broad platform to present the at once pleasurable and contradictory variety of Bernese and Jurassic art to audiences. On the second weekend of December 10 and 11, artists from Thun and the surrounding region will open their studios to the public. The Kunstmuseum will release a brochure with a site plan that tells the public how to reach the various studios.
