On the exhibition "what do we want to keep?":

These days, we are inundated with news of top ten rankings and highest prices for artworks. But how are these lists compiled, and how do they formulate a canon by which the importance of the individual artist is judged? RELAX (chiarenza & hauser & co) explores the issue. At the Graphische Sammlung ETH Zürich, Marie-Antoinette Chiarenza and Daniel Hauser take a closer look at the works in the collection, at the place itself, at the way the collection has been built up over the past 151 years, and put them into context in relation to this canonisation.
