La Congiunta, Peter Märkli
La Congiunta, museum by Swiss architect Peter Märkli. Made for the works of Hans Josephsohn. Keys are picked up at a sleepy cafe in the city of Giornico, and you lock yourself in to see the museum.
Since its inauguration, 33 of Josephsohn’s works have been on display there – 3 large half-figures and 30 works from the reliefs category, which was a major impulse for Peter Märkli in developing his own way of dealing with architectural questions regarding volumes, proportions, spatial relationships as well as the presence of the human figure in the architecturally shaped space.
Visited by Frederik in the summer of 2022.
