A Brief (Oral) History of the Löwenbräu
In Celebration of its 25th Anniversary
During nine months, from April to December 2021, weekly 60 second-clips will be published on the Instagram account of Löwenbräu-Kunst introducing 36 artists, directors, curators, critics, who have exhibited their art or simply built a relationship with it in the past 25 years, but also visitors who share personal memories representing two and a half decades of action. The goal is to create a short oral history of the place and related (forgotten) moments.

Since her beginnings in the early 1980s Pipilotti Rist has taken the art world by storm making a name for herself with mesmerizing video installations. During her hugely successful solo show at Kunsthalle Zurich in 1999 people were queuing up in the staircase before opening hours. Enjoy her signature style anniversary message!
Our next guest in the series Memorable Memories for 25 years Löwenbräu comes from Mexico City. His name: Carlos Amorales. He performed the Devil Dance at the Daros Collection in 2006, but also showed previously at the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst where his alter ego wrestler staged the artistic fight Amorales vs. Amorales.
