Hamlet is a non-profit exhibition program and research endeavour and was founded by Andrea Abegg Serrano, Cathrin Jarema and Clifford E. Bruckmann.
Hamlet was founded in 2018 and started its exhibition program in 2019. It is currently run by Antonia Truninger and Julia Hegi. Hamlet initiates, hosts and facilitates projects also with changing collaborators. In addition, Hamlet‘s self-understanding involves research efforts, especially - but not exclusively - in regards to the urban surrounding of the space itself.
Hamlet‘s focus lies on issues and varying notions of transformation, generational gaps and conflicts, as well as the distribution of property, power and information. Different methods are employed and experimented with in order to support the development and dissemination of knowledge: on one hand, Hamlet uses established formal approaches and tropes and on the other hand attempts to offer a surrounding allowing discourse, experimentation and disruption.
Hamlet is also dedicated to offering less established artist‘s positions early individual presentations in a proto-institutional setting as well as group shows and alternative forms of artistic presentation.
It is part of Hamlet‘s mission to keep the space and the work developing within as accessible as possible by removing barriers and directly addressing a wide audience actively.
