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.
