Nolde/Huber: Nom d'une montagne

Research output: Artistic and non-textual formExhibitionArt in coproductionpeer-review


Curator: Dr. Céline Eidenbenz

Artists: Sasha Huber (*1975) and Emil Nolde (1867–1956)

This exhibition is dedicated to a new dialogue between two works of art, between the famous mountain postcard series by Emil Nolde (1867-1956 ) and the video installation "Rentyhorn" (2008) by Sasha Huber.

Over a century separates the German Expressionist Emil Nolde from the Swiss-Haitian artist Sasha Huber, but they share interest in the names which the people gave to the peaks of the Alps. These are often related to local legends or famous personalities and have sometimes a problematic history. For example the Agassizhorn, named after the Swiss geologist of the same name who was known for the discovery of the ice age, but who's racist theories have long embellished.
