Klöntal Valley—located above Glarus—has been a recurrent focus of art since the mid- seventeenth century: far removed from mass tourism, the valley and its pristine landscape nurture visions of an ideal utopia even today. It has always been a fascination of artists. A PLACE LIKE THIS takes up this theme, presenting twenty-three international positions at selected locations in Klöntal Valley and at Kunsthaus Glarus. A majority of the new works created specifically for this location directly reference Klöntal Valley’s rich artistic tradition. The contemporary artists have been invited to address the location and its heritage, the landscape and nature, activating these concerns from a present-day perspective and questioning their historical to poi.
