The oldest art academy in Switzerland will celebrate its birthday this year. Over the past 140 years, and under various names, the Hochschule Luzern Design & Kunst has trained countless sculptors, drawing teachers, illustrators, textile designers and fine artists. Some came to study in Lucerne and stayed, others grew up in Central Switzerland and then went elsewhere. What has become of those former students? What topics are they pursuing? In what media are they working? With the three-part exhibition series Fortsetzung folgt (To be continued), the akku Kunstplattform and the Kunstmuseum Luzern address these questions by means of current works by the respective artists. The range spans two generations; the youngest artist was born in 1987, the oldest in 1933. The gaze conveyed by the selected works from a period covering about 60 years is not unified, but rather kaleidoscopic, highlighting the diversity of artistic creativity.
