Refreshing, uncompromising, magnificent, ingeniously simple and intoxicatingly complex works by artists from the cantons of Bern and Jura.
One in three was the chance of winning one of the coveted exhibition spaces at the intercantonal Christmas exhibition - a ratio similar to "Scissors, Stone, Paper". From around 530 submissions, 177 artists were selected to provide an insight into their current work. Twelve art houses are now participating in the "Cantonale Berne Jura". New venues this year are the Museum Franz Gertsch in Burgdorf and the Kunsthaus Steffisburg, which was invited as a guest last year. Around 50 works by 26 artists are on display at the Kunstmuseum Thun.

Works that fit the location:
A conscious decision was made this year not to have a unifying theme for the exhibitions. Central to the selection was rather whether the works and positions fit the respective house, strategically as well as architecturally. In contrast to previous years, no weight was given to content-related tendencies in the selection. This was a conscious decision intended as a sign of openness after two years of pandemic and worldwide crises. Accordingly, many techniques and media are represented, artistic creation from scissors to stone to paper and beyond.

From December 2022 to January 2023, the Cantonale Berne Jura will showcase refreshing, uncompromising, magnificent, ingeniously simple and intoxicatingly complex works by artists from the cantons of Berne and Jura. The exhibitions in eleven art institutions form an expressive platform of current artistic creation of supra-regional importance. The aim of the Cantonale is to present a broad spectrum of artistic positions and to strive for the best possible quality of the respective exhibitions.
