> DESCRIPTION

From June 23 until September 25, 2011 Kunstmuseum Bonn presents under the title ‘THROUGH THE LOOKING BRAIN’ the photography collection of Swiss Zellweger Luwa AG which has never been shown in public before.

Established by Ruedi and Thomas Bechtler in 1990 and constantly complemented by Cristina Bechtler, Ruedi Bechtler und Bice Curiger (Kunsthaus Zürich), the collection has become over the last 20 years one of the best and most comprehensive international collections in the field of conceptual photography.

The collection contains works from the 1970s until today, including main works by artists ranging from John Baldessari, Bernd and Hilla Becher, Sigmar Polke, Imi Knoebel, Martin Kippenberger, Thomas Ruff, Andreas Gursky, Fischli/Weiss, Roman Signer, Richard Prince, Jeff Wall, Hiroshi Sugimoto, to Stan Douglas, Ken Lum and Gabriel Orozco.

Luwa AG was founded by Hans and Walter Bechtler who already displayed art on their premises in the early 1950s. In 1955, Walter Bechtler established the foundation for art in public space which has given important impulses to the Swiss museum landscape.

After its presentation in Bonn, the exhibition will move to Kunstmuseum St. Gallen.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalog with essays by Stephan Berg, Konrad Bitterli, David Company, Stefan Gronert and an interview with Bice Curiger.
