HAYP Pop Up Gallery is constantly on the move! Several projects will come to life in the coming months.
HAYP 12.0: Voices & Choices
June 29 – July 15, 2018
Location: Republic Square 2, Yerevan, Armenia
A project in cooperation with the Embassy of Switzerland to the Republic of Armenia.
HAYP Pop Up Gallery and the Swiss Embassy to the Republic of Armenia propose “Voices & Choices” an interpretation of “STIMMVOLK – VOLKSSTIMME”, a traveling exhibit of the Museum fur Gestaltung (Zurich) exploring the visual language and rhetoric around conflict in political posters. The exhibit will display 100 Swiss political posters from the past 100 years courtesy of the Museum’s Collection, in dialogue with Armenian political posters from Independence until today. By engaging contemporary artists who have been working in Armenia since the 1988 Armenian protests, as well as works from various National archives, we aim to examine changes in public perception, democratic ideology, and citizen-participation as seen through the artistic lens of protest posters and signage.
