1978 – InK: Halle für internationale neue Kunst
The InK opens its doors in Zurich in 1978. Under its director Urs Raussmüller, the museum pursues a groundbreaking concept of art promotion: artists are invited to realise or show new works at InK in return for space, assistance and a fee. Some 60 exhibitions by artists such as Bruce Nauman, Gerhard Richter, Sol LeWitt, Georg Baselitz and Joseph Beuys are staged between 1978 and 1981. Raussmüller also curates the art collection of the Federation of Migros Cooperatives, which is transferred to the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst in 1996.
