An art laboratory in the sky near the

take a red Coca-Cola refrigerator, on top of a red cylinder on top and then top the Whole thing with the head of a stuffed chamois: Ready for the mountain work of art. A Readymade that combines Tradition and Modern fun.

We arrived at the pass hotel Furkablick – or rather, in an exhibition in the house for art Uri in Altdorf. As the Hotel is set at the beginning of the 1980s, in the absence of yield of the operation, came up with the new Burger gallerist Marc Hostettler and animated the imposing mountain house for a period of twelve summers, from 1984 to 1996, in a magical way with his artists.

One of the First American performance artist James Lee Byars, the one that we see on a video film, wearing a gold-colored suit and a black hat, on the Alpine meadows around, strutted, and of youthful spectators was observed. was Lee Byars sprayed in his strange performance a bit of perfume on a rock when he wanted to baptize him.

A hat of Beuys?

the Hotel on the Furka, in the summer months only habitable, it was left back over the years to a mountain Museum is full of amazing most objects, the new artists here. It was a hat in a display case that has been attributed to Joseph Beuys (which refer to the critic but rather to the realm of myths). Or the keys to the room doors, which were provided by the American conceptual artist Lawrence Weiner with a metal ring, on which he had the words "Covered by clouds" in length. You could refer as much to the frequent clouds above the Hotel on the warm Duvets on the beds.

but Above all they are works of art, paintings and installations, which were created on the Furka pass. Works by approximately sixty artists came together, usually in the Furkablick and and kept. The most impressive and beautiful objects are now gathered in Altdorf. For example, Roman Signer, the remains of a firework, which he sent here in 1999, in the sky. Or of Daniel Buren, a white-red striped Flag that is torn to shreds by the strong Wind on the mountain.

On the Furka works are created, the aging of good wines.

Also great, concrete-constructivist painting by the Geneva concept artist John Armleder, there are in the exhibition. Then, photos and a video projection to give a comprehensive picture of the media-critical Performance of the Swiss artist Remy Zaugg, which took place in 1988. Anna Winteler finally, the currently at the Kunsthaus baselland in Muttenz, a Grand entrance, danced in 1989, together with Monika Klingler and a portable camera on the meadows in front of the Hotel.

Astonished, we stood in front of a Video about a sound sculpture of the Zurich concept and multimedia artist Christoph Rütimann, sent in the quarter - hour rhythm, a droning, with a gas flame generated sound in the mountain world.

a captivating collection of works come together, which will now be held at the end of Musealization in Altdorf appreciation. Because in Hostettlers art laboratory works are created, the aging of good wines.

The star architect renovated

What could not borrow the Altdorfer Museum of the Furka, to paint the big window, the terrace and many of the mini, but well thought-through architectural intervention, which the Dutch architect missed Rem Koolhaas of the Hotel. Its Renovation was completed in 1991 and may be referred to as the only example of the star architects on Swiss soil.

Hostettler, incidentally, retired in 2004 from the Furka and sold the Hotel including the art of Alfred-Richterich-Foundation Run, in the Canton of Basel-land. This has created a new Institute Furkablick that takes care of that now, under the leadership of former Stroemfeld publisher Janis Osolin and his wife Huang Qi to the maintenance of the building and the preservation of the works.

The Hotel is no longer in operation, but in the summer months you can dine in our Restaurant and the architecture of Koolhaas enjoy. The Museum Director Barbara Zürcher, journalist Thomas Bolli and the photographer Christof Hirtler-curated exhibition in Altdorf has expired, the art back up on the mountain, where they can be seen in a few guides.

Haus für Kunst Uri, Altdorf, to 26. May.
