Publication potential worlds planetary memories and eco fictions

Potential Worlds: Planetary Memories & Eco-Fictions

«Potential Worlds: Planetary Memories & Eco-Fictions» is concerned with the ecological crisis that the world currently finds itself in. The main emphasis is to foster a rethink in our relationship with nature, natural resources, and with all life upon this earth. It is time to change our thinking about coexistence, supported by post humanist approaches and technological progress. The catalogue covers 36 artistic positions concerned with the forms of man’s (co-)existence with nature, and using the role of art as a technological, scientific and social experimental field.  

The catalogue was published to accompany the wide-ranging exhibitions «Potential Worlds 1 : Planetary Memories & Eco-Fictions» and «Potential Worlds 2: Eco-Fictions» held at the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst (7 March - 11 October 2020 and 24 October 2020 to 9 May 2021).

Publication Förderprogramm

contakt-citoyenneté funding programme 2012 – 2019

For decades the issue of how people arriving in Switzerland can find their place in society has been a central topic of political debate. Between 2012 and 2019 contakt-citoyenneté sponsored many social engagement initiatives concerned with migration and integration. This document explains the most significant results achieved during the seven years that the funding programme was running.

Freiwilligen-Monitor 2020

The «Freiwilligen-Monitor» (Volunteers’ Monitor) is supported by the Swiss Society for the Common Good (SGG), Migros Culture Percentage, the Beisheim Foundation, and 30 partner organisations. 

The «Freiwilligen-Monitor» presents the latest figures on voluntary work undertaken in Switzerland. Six  out of 10 people regularly volunteer for charitable organisations within the community. And in fact, seven out of 10 people occasionally offer help to neighbours - not just in an emergency such as the Coronavirus pandemic.

Publication Alt werden Familienangehörige

Ageing without family support

An explorative study conducted by Migros Culture Percentage. 

Not every elderly person can rely on the support and sense of duty from members of their family. More than 8% of pensioners in Switzerland grow old without the support of family members. Who are these people? Who supports them when they need help in their daily lives as they grow old?

Publication Einkommen Älterer Menschen

The disposable income of older people in Switzerland.

A consortium consisting of nine funding trusts and organisations has commissioned the study by FHNW. 

This November 2019 study focuses on pensioner households. It examines the way in which changes in health in old age can affect individual budgets. For the first time a study is supplying realistic figures for all the principal canton locations. This examination of spending is important because older people are themselves bearing many of the costs inflicted by the need for care in old age. That has a direct effect on their disposable incomes.

Publication Wegweiser Betreuung im Alter

Wegweiser für gute Betreuung im Alter

Now more than ever, older people require good care. Now, because as a vulnerable group they are forced to stay at home. And because social contact is just as important for them as shopping. And distanced conversations about their anxieties and hopes, their sorrows and their consolations are essential. The Coronavirus crisis can open our eyes to the importance of good care in old age. This guide to good care in old age explains what good care actually means and in which areas of activity it can be found. Migros Culture Percentage is a co-publisher of this guide.

Publication United by Aids

United by AIDS — An Anthology on Art in Response to HIV / AIDS

The anthology analyses the diverse and multi-layered cohesion between art and HIV/AIDS from the 1980s to now. It discusses both the blurred boundaries of art production and HIV/AIDs related activism, and the artists who define this (art-historical) debate even today. The publication follows the thematic structure of the exhibition and has curated views from the past and the present day. Reprints of essays by Douglas Crimp (1980), Alexander García Düttmann (1993), and Elisabeth Lebocivi (2017), along with a new essay by Ted Kerr, open up a wide perspective to the discussion and social confrontation with AIDS.  

The publication was published to accompany a comprehensive group exhibition United by AIDS – An Exhibition about Loss, Remembrance, Activism and Art in Response to HIV/AIDS  at the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst (31 August - 10 November 2019).

Publication producing futures a book on post cyber feminisms

Cyberfeminism / Producing Futures – A Book on Post-Cyber-Feminisms

With its publication Producing Futures - A Book on Post-Cyber-Feminisms the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst is dedicated to the feminist concerns of the post-internet era.  While the cyber-feminists of the 1990s focused on establishing cyberspace as a place of freedom and empowerment by making targeted use of communication and networking options, the hope today needs to be subjected to a critical review. The publication gathers current views from people such as Joanna Walsh (2019), Yvonne Volkart (2019) and Paul B. Preciado (2016), whose theories supplement a photographic insight into the exhibition. 

The book was published to accompany a comprehensive group exhibition Producing Futures – An Exhibition on Post-Cyber-Feminisms at the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst (16 February to 12 May 2019).

Toys Redux. An Anthology on Play as Critical Action

The publication is dedicated to motifs from video games, TV series, films, and cartoons. Articles by Esther Buss, Raphael Gygax, Judith Welter and Alexander R.

With illustrations of art works from the «Toys Redux – On Play and Critique» group exhibition at the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst the publication expands on the subject with adoptions of pop culture formats and visual worlds  

The publication was published to accompany the comprehensive group exhibition «Toys Redux – On Play and Critique» at the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst (30th May - 16th August 2015).

Two surveys by Migros Culture Percentage indicate the high value placed on culture by the Swiss people. The results gave us grounds to reflect on a «culture of promoting culture». What role should private culture promoters take in society? The overwhelming majority of the population (79%) responded that commercial companies should not renegue on their responsibility. They must engage and not simply leave it all to the state. What does that mean for the future of culture promotion and the Migros Culture Percentage?

Was it just that easy? But which order was the same? Perplexity levels are high. 37 authors plunge with glee into disorder, the unknown, the unnamed. They juggle with Borges’ «Chinese encyclopaedia», delve into «derelict patterns» and «words that belong to the author», rewrite the old encyclopaedia with a «very small camelhair brush» to an order that in our eyes is not order, but which in truth merely renounces the greater context. Anyone who engages with this «Handbook of Perplexity» enters the «collapsing spaces of possibility». Everything here is «reeling» – as in the rest of the world.

«The medium is the message.» This now legendary statement by Marshall McLuhan was made nearly 50 years ago. Because in the post-Gutenberg era, the channels over which a message is sent are not more important than the message itself. For the media industry this means a deep-seated structural change - from channel managers to those who produce the messages. In seven theses, GDI Impuls describes how this change might take place - and where new opportunities may be found for companies both inside and outside the media industry up to this day.

It can be established that when reflecting on different spatial concepts, from the home, the territory, through to the abstract concept of «representation space», the aspect of the space in between as a material or imaginary boundary plays a crucial role - whether that be the doorstep to a house, or a rite of passage - whether that be the gap or the post-colonial space in between.

With their «Tamatar» project the media arts pioneers at etoy demonstrate that digital art can be expressed with sculptures too. In «Sonic Traces from Switzerland» members of the Norient network seek a sound signature for Switzerland. Blending the boundaries between biology, art and society the members of «Knowbotic Research» venture into the mythical world between man and beast. Lastly, the aim of the «my-Vote» internet project by the Politools association, is to get 18 to 24 year olds interested in politics and voting.
