The new exhibition at the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung has been installed and will be on view starting 26 January 2018. Entitled Viewing the Other, it presents impressive sculptures and installations by internationally renowned artists such as Tony Cragg, Mona Hatoum, Ki-Ra Kim, Raimund Kummer, Alejandra Seeber, Kiki Smith, and Pae White.
After a ten-month viewing-period the exhibition lebenswelt | life-world came to an end in October. The large number of visitors and the consistently positive feedback from the press made it one of the most successful exhibitions organized by the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung.

It included a child-oriented guided tour in which children came in contact with artworks made of glass for the first time.
The Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung is supporting the campuses in Höhr-Grenzhausen and Koblenz in ceramics at all training levels for the second year.

The Institute of Ceramic and Glass Arts at the Koblenz University of Applied Sciences inaugurated a new, modern hot-glass kiln in the presence of numerous guests on 30 September 2017. The financial support of the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung made the acquisition and construction of the kiln possible.
