Landliebe: Art and Agriculture
The theme is of great importance for Switzerland and Graubünden and has always been a central motif in the visual arts. For a long time, art favored an idealizing idea of the peasantry: grazing sheep in the sun or rising mowers are motifs that we know from artists such as Giovanni Giacometti, Andrea Garbald or Ernst Ludwig Kirchner. In contemporary art, the idyll of yesteryear gives way to questioning topics such as soil erosion or over-management.
