'Summer of Suspense' is an experiment – as most days, of late, have been – in alternative forms of getting together. 43 local artists slowly develop a show that accumulates over seven weeks. Three days a week (Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday) two artists come to Kunsthalle Zürich to install, perform or present a work, with a toast at 6 p.m. for those who stop by. After seven weeks, all 43 works stay on view from the 12 July until the 13 September, around which time a new season and sentiment might be afoot.
