Bruch / Break
Breaks can be expressed in many ways. A break down describes something collapsing or falling apart. In German, a departure or a time of change are called “Aufbruch”. New achievements and inventions are referred to as breakthroughs. You can break the law or a code or someone’s will. And at times, breaking up and taking a break can be the same.

How can art react to all these breaks? Should art break with a polarized society and complicate things? In which ways can we break out nowadays? Superficial masks and covers can break; pop stars like Kanye West talk openly about their fragile, breakable facades. Artists stage and embody (their) brokenness, trying to find the right words to express themselves; Kanye describes his mental breakdown as a “breakthrough”.

All these variations show us how diverse – how playful, symbolic or metaphorical – the term „break“ can be. At Löwenbräukunst-Areal there will soon be a physical breakthrough from Limmatstrasse 268 to 270: a break that creates a passage within the building and makes room for a new restaurant. The house will integrate into the neighborhood that has been on the move for several years.
