On the occasion of the current exhibition About Us. Young Photography from China, the platform Photography of China has published an interview with Dr. Eva-Maria Fahrner-Tutsek, chairwoman of the board of the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung.

A year with unprecedented challenges that has certainly been an unusual one for all of us is drawing to a close. We wish you and your families a peaceful Christmas and all the best for a happy and, above all, healthy New Year. We hope that in 2021 we will see you again soon and that we will have the opportunity to tackle upcoming projects with renewed energy and confidence.
The third and last exhibition of the series Photography Today, which is supported by the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung, was realized in the Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich. Under the title Resistant Faces, the exhibition inquires into the state of the portrait in the digital age. It presents a collection of fourteen critical approaches to both visuality and reality from contemporary photography, including a work by the Norwegian artist Frida Orupabo. The work was made available on loan from the collection of the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung.
Due to the current Corona measures, the exhibition About Us. Young Photography from China is unfortunately still closed. However, we hope that the developments will allow for a soon reopening in the New Year. In order to give as many people as possible the opportunity to see the impressive works of a total of 14 young artists from China, the exhibition will be extended until 26 February 2021.
