LIFE IS NOT A BEACH
22 January 2016 - 24 June 2016
Extended until 2. September 2016
Continuing its series of thematic exhibitions, the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung shows contemporary photographs and sculptures until 2. September 2016.
Entitled LIFE IS NOT A BEACH, the new exhibition addresses the dark sides of life. One example is the oppressive world of drug addicts. The photographer Matthieu Gafsou documents these in his photographs in an authentic and at the same time poetically sensible manner.
The sculptures, the second focus of the exhibition, were made of the everyday and yet many-sided material glass as well as mixed media. In their diverse works, internationally renowned artists (including Philip Baldwin & Monica Guggisberg, Mona Hatoum, Silvia Levenson, Janusz Walentynowicz) and young artists take a profound look at people’s general fears as well as their inner and outer conflicts.
Due to the great visitors’ interest, the exhibition LIFE IS NOT A BEACH will be extended until
2. September 2016.
Accompanying the exhibition the foundation offers public guided tours on a regular basis. They take place every first Thursday of the month at 4 pm.
Upcoming guided tours:
4 August 2016
1 September 2016
HAUS DER KUNST IN MUNICH
Long-term Cooperation and Support
The Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung is the new partner and major supporter of Haus der Kunst in Munich. The Haus der Kunst is not only one of the most important museums in Munich, but it also earned an outstanding reputation as one of the leading cultural centres in the world of contemporary art. At first the foundation financed individual projects in the field of photography: in 2015 the exhibition of the artist Stan Douglas and in 2016 the exhibition of James Casebere. It then decided to support the museum on a comprehensive and long-term basis.
