HAMLETDörflistrasse 67, 8050 Zürich, Switzerland
Hamlet was founded in 2018 and started its exhibition program in 2019. It is run by Cathrin Jarema and Clifford E. Bruckmann and initiates, hosts and facilitates projects also with changing collaborators and accomplices. In addition, Hamlet‘s self-understanding involves research efforts, especially – but not exclusively – in regards to the urban surrounding of the space itself.
Hamlet‘s focus lies on issues and varying notions of transformation, generational gaps and conflicts, as well as the distribution of property, power and information. Different methods are employed and experimented with in order to support the development and dissemination of knowledge: on one hand, Hamlet uses established formal approaches and tropes and on the other hand attempts to offer a surrounding allowing discourse, experimentation and disruption.
Hamlet is also dedicated to offering less established artist‘s positions early individual presentations in a proto-institutional setting as well as group shows and alternative forms of artistic presentation.
It is part of Hamlet‘s mission to keep the space and the work developing within as accessible as possible by removing barriers and directly addressing a wide audience actively.
