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.

  • Marguerite Humeau: Orisons
    Jul 29, 2023 – Jun 30, 2025
    Black Cube
    Hooper, USA

    Marguerite Humeau’s Orisons is a subtle, 160-acre earthwork that transforms an unfarmable plot of land in Colorado’s San Luis Valley into a place of reverence, honoring its expansive history, existing ecosystem, and imaginable futures. The work consists of the land in its entirety, as well as a series of eighty-four kinetic and interactive sculptures that invoke the land’s histories and vast network of interrelations. (more…)

  • How we remember tomorrow
    Feb 13 – Jun 15, 2024
    University of Queensland Art Museum
    Brisbane, Australia

    How we remember tomorrow celebrates storytelling across generations, through oceans and waterways and transcending eras and perspectives. Featured artists understand the watery spaces of our planet as ancestral archives: sources of knowledge that carry stories and cultural practices. Alongside their kin, they honour intergenerational narratives that are disseminated along ocean currents despite ongoing colonial legacies of forced displacement, homeland dispossession, indenture and the loss or dormancy of vital cultural practices.
