Date with an Artist​

Olaf Breuning (Zürich / New York)

The first meeting in the series "Date with an Artist" will be a studio visit with Swiss artist Olaf Breuning, at his studio in Upstate NY. Breuning will show us his new paintings and prints, revolving around the relationship between humans and nature. We will also speak about his earlier works and his use of absurd humor over the years through film, performance, sculpture and drawing, asking how art subverts notions of political correctness and identity politics. What is the role of humor in a serious world? Should art be funny? *In collaboration with the Swiss Embassy and Wake Up Now
