Can we feel a life’s work? Yes! Anyone who had the opportunity to work with Alexander Tutsek felt what a life’s work means. So today on 14 September 2021, on the tenth anniversary of his death, we remember a very special person with gratitude. Who was Alexander Tutsek? What did he contribute? What led him? Let us take a look at his life’s work and what it means to us today.
With the BlackBox, the Alexander-Tutsek Stiftung will open an additional location in the north of Munich in November 2021. Located on the ground floor of a building completed in 2020 in the heart of the still young Parkstadt Schwabing, the spacious rooms of the BlackBox offer opportunities to show large-format photographs and room-filling installations from the foundation’s collection.
The exhibition Anna Ehrenstein. Tools for Conviviality is still on view at C/O Berlin until until September 2, 2021. The exhibition takes place on the occasion of the C/O Talent Award 2020, which was awarded to the German-Albanian media artist Anna Ehrenstein and made possible by the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung. A video created as part of the series C/O Berlin Asks… now offers interesting insights into the exhibition.
The Alexander Tutsek-Sitftung is pleased that, for the first time in a museum, all 46 portraits of Nicholas Nixon’s unique long-term project The Brown Sisters are on public display at the Pinakothek der Moderne. The acquisition of the complete series by the US-American photographer was made possible thanks to support from the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung. The most recent portrait is particularly striking: it was taken in 2020 – the year of social distancing.
