Bernhard Luginbühl, von Bartha, Basel

Bernhard Luginbühl (1929 – 2011) is one of Switzerland‘s most respected contemporary artists. The new exhibition of his work at von Bartha features Luginbühl’s sculptures, ranging in size from the larger than life to rarer smaller wall pieces. The show also explores Luginbühl‘s sculptural collaborations with fellow artists Dieter Roth, Jean Tinguely and Alfred Hofkunst. Luginbühl’s work is renowned for its tension between movement and counter-movement, between dynamic elements moving into space and supporting structures controlling these movements.
