A unique indoor and outdoor experience creates John M arm leather. Especially for the SCHIRN he develops innovative, room-filling installations. They combine high culture and everyday life, the profound and the banal in an ambivalent way. Based on the formal repertoire of innovative - Constructivism, Op-Art, Pop, gestural, abstract painting, nonetheless equally stripe and design concept - Armleder finds poetic and ironic comments on our contemporary reality and the status of art. Chance and planning are mixed and visitors are often actively involved in the artistic process.

Now in 1986 he recorded the Swiss Pavilion at the Venice Biennale and in 1987 participated in the documenta 8 in Kassel. Numerous awards and workshows followed, in this way, for example, in 2018, two retrospectives on his 70th birthday at the Museum MADRE in Naples and at the Museion Bolzano.
