In anthropology, the term “memorizer” signifies a person who remembers the history of his clan. To a large degree, this was the role that Andreas Züst fulfilled. He did not merely collect art, but also stories and events. He chronicled everything that attracted him and was part of his life. His archive of photographs and his art collection, comprising more than  1'500 works, have become a unique document of cultural and art history. With a comprehensive illustrated work list and more than 150 color plates as well as numerous photographs by Andreas Züst. Texts by Dora Imhof/Bice Curiger, Martin Jaeggi, Walter Keller, Caroline Kesser, Stephan Kunz, Dietmar Rübel, Madeleine Schuppli, Peter Weber, Mara Züst.

Including a DVD with 10 interviews by Peter Mettler with Anton Bruhin, Bice Curiger, Olivia Etter, Patrick Frey, Urban Gwerder, Ize Hollinger, Walter Keller, Peter Mettler, Jan Voss, Peter Weber.

The catalogue is published on the occasion of the exhibition at Aargauer Kunsthaus, Aarau.
