With its focus on contemporary glass and photography the foundation is unique in the Munich art scene. We cordially invite you to our program on this day and evening.
Promoting the training of artists who work with glass is one of the main goals of Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung’s funding activities. With its new support program “Scholarships for Pilchuck Glass School” the foundation grants up to five scholarships per year to artists domiciled and permanently residing in Germany.
The Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung has had with its current exhibition lebenswelt | life-world the busiest summer to date. Numerous interested members of the public as well as experts from other museums and artists from the glass scene including Simone Fezer, Franz X. Höller, and students from the Burg Giebichenstein University of Art and Design Halle visited the foundation. The Chinese artist Wang Quin, who is represented in the collection with six works, came from Shanghai.
On 20 July 2017, the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung offers extended opening hours. The exhibition will be open to the public on this day from 2 to 8 pm. We sincerely welcome all who are interested in visiting the exhibition and have not yet had the opportunity to join us on this day. Light refreshments will be served.

The photographic historian and established connoisseur of Japanese photography will talk about the works by Japanese photographer Rinko Kawauchi on view in our current exhibition lebenswelt | life-world.
Lebenswelt | life-world has been the most popular exhibition of the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung to date. Due to the great response and demand we will extend the exhibition to 20 October 2017.

Supporting young talent is an important objective of the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung. It funds, for instance, sculpture courses with emphasis on glass at art academies and glass schools. The support gives students the chance to realize special projects and to produce costly artworks.
To visitors who are interested in seeing further works by the two artists in our current show lebenswelt | life-world, we recommend the exhibition Kokoro: Japanese Glass Today at Glasmuseum Frauenau. Breathtaking works by Masahiro Sasaki and Yoshiaki Kojiro are on view there.
