Sponsorship of Haus der Kunst in Munich
Exhibition James Casebere. Fugitive

Providing major support to institutions is a new focal point of the sponsorship program of the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung. Within this context the foundation is the sole sponsor of the exhibition James Casebere. Fugitive at Haus der Kunst. The architectural motifs in the photographs of James Casebere (born in Lansing, Michigan, USA in 1953) include monotone housing developments, flooded hallways in luxurious villas, bare prison interiors, Moorish and Islamic architecture. Casabere’s approach is very particular: He creates detailed architectural models in which he stages imagined, fictitious scenes and photographs them. The resultant images seem to hover between the fugitive and sublime, between realism and fiction.
