Rethinking (Art) History (without Reaching a Conclusion)By Daniel Baumann
It is not a coincidence if Adolf Wölfli’s work ended up at the Kunstmuseum Bern.[i] In that city, you could find a community—curator Harald Szeemann; curator of the Paul Klee Foundation Jürgen Glaesemer; art historian Elka Spoerri and her husband the psychiatrist and professor Theodor Spoerri; artists like Bernhard Luginbühl, Meret Oppenheim, and Markus Raetz; art dealer Toni Gerber—convinced that Wölfli’s oeuvre, and not just his, had to be considered art and should therefore be housed in an art museum.
