SHOEting Stars. Shoes in Art and Design
18.06.-05.10.14The topic of “shoes“ opens up an entire cosmos of stories, personal experiences and preconceptions. Shoes symbolise passion, fetish, sensuality, and the search for perfection. They represent trivial needs and at the same time are an attractive medium for artistic exploration. The subject of this exhibition is the contemplation of shoes not only as transient fashion projects but as design objects that make their own autonomous statements.

17.10.13-16.02.14The Swiss photographer Michel Comte, born in 1954, is a master of spontaneity and transformation who is constantly in search of new challenges. In the more than 30 years of his career, he has photographed film stars, supermodels and greats of the jazz and music scenes as well as people at scenes of crisis across the globe. Comte’s photographic eye is as sharp and alert on the red carpets of film festivals and luxury hotels as among the ruins of war zones.
