Contemporary Glass, Photography, and the Support of Science

Many fans of international studio glass meanwhile know the address well: The Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung is at home in an art-nouveau villa in Munich-Schwabing and exhibits contemporary sculpture and photography. The sculptures are made of glass, a material which interests artists rather rarely. The very versatile media has developed into an interesting area in art. Works with ambiguous messages have replaced applied forms such as vases or bowls. Artists address subtle abstract themes that cannot be expressed in the same manner with other materials.

The Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung supports art and science. Dr. Eva-Maria Fahrner-Tutsek and Alexander Tutsek founded this non-profit foundation in December 2000. Since then Eva-Maria Fahrner-Tutsek has been its chairwoman. One of the foundation’s goals is to make contemporary glass and, from 2008 on, also photography better known. The foundation organizes thematic exhibitions, publishes catalogues, and regularly offers guided tours.

Important work areas for the foundation are the support of artists as well as building up a first-class collection of glass and photography. The collection covers a broad spectrum of contemporary tendencies, represented by works of internationally renowned artists as well as younger talents.

Another focus of the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung is research in the engineering sciences. The foundation is interested in supporting specific disciplines within the engineering sciences as well as special interdisciplinary projects.
