Stille Reserven. Schweizer Malerei 1850–1950 (Catalogue)

An artistically motivated private collection meets an art-historically conceived public museum collection: In Stille Reserven, paintings from the collection of Basel artist Peter Suter - mainly works by Swiss painters from the first half of the 20th century who are unknown to the general public - meet the collection of the Aargauer Kunsthaus Aarau, which houses many works by renowned artists. This thematically structured book presents the works in a dialogue and attempts to redefine how art is seen, experienced and described. In this way, the unfamiliar constellations of images enable viewers to gain a new understanding of images - not least of the well-known works. With a conversation between the philosopher Hans Ulrich Reck and the artist and collector Peter Suter. The book was published to accompany the exhibition Stille Reserven at the Aargauer Kunsthaus, Aarau, 26 January to 28 April 2013.
