98 days: Hannah Müller

Today's journey through the halls of Kunsthaus Zurich was a voyage across the epochs of art. Each room whispered stories of creativity and vision. While delving into the expressionist works, I encountered Hannah Müller, a local art student sketching fervently beside a Marc Chagall masterpiece. Her charcoal danced across the pad, capturing the fluidity and emotion of Chagall’s palette. Hannah shared her perspective on how the vibrancy of expressionist art parallels the emotional landscape of modern Zurich. She spoke of her project, which intertwines Zurich's architectural heritage with its modernist tendencies, aiming to bridge the gap through her art. We exchanged ideas about the influence of historical context on artistic expression. Our conversation took place in the Chagall museum. We discussed the continuity of artistic endeavor, connecting past and present, much like the city of Zurich itself. As I left the museum, the cobblestone streets beneath the afternoon sun seemed to glow, perhaps a bit brighter, colored by the insights gained from a fellow artist. Today was not just about viewing art. It was about experiencing the confluence of history, culture, and personal connection. All of these elements come alive in this city of art and history.
