suns.works’gallery took up residence on the top floor former headquarters of Credit Suisse of the Hochhaus zur Palme, a modernist high-rise in Zurich, before its imminent transformation. Aggressively futuristic at the time, projecting a confidence in never-ending progress, it is now a landmark.

The show embraced the high-modernist aesthetics of Hochhaus zur Palme and the sombre atmosphere of the eponymous story of New Rose Hotel, whose techno-erotic vision of the future, coloured by millennial anxiety, appears much closer to present-day sensibilities.

set design together with Matthew Phillips. Exhibition participation, Manon Gaeschlin, Martin Jaeggi.
