Ever since it was founded, the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst has intensively addressed the positions of artists whose work is characterised by the use of performance-based, processual or social-interventionist strategies. This has been demonstrated by solo exhibitions, such as those by Gianni Motti (2004), Spartacus Chetwynd (2007) or Karla Black (2009), and retrospectives on artists like Heidi Bucher (2004), Tadeusz Kantor (2008) or Xanti Schawinsky (2015). Many such artists, who often confront a collection with complex curation issues, have found their way into the collection. The collection presentation Collection Revisited – 1960-1982 looks at artists from this period who use these artistic strategies to criticise and change social circumstances and the role of women, but also the rules of the art scene and a male hegemonic writing of art history. A new in-depth art-historical reception of many of these artists has taken place just in the last ten years.
