May the 13rd: Opening of the new photographic exhibition

Displayed in the «Spazio Mostre», on the first and second floor of Villa Malpensata, the exhibition «Discipline and Senses. Hans Georg Berger. A retrospective» presents 145 fine black and white photographs printed with silver-salt emulsions on baryta photo paper, from the negatives conserved in the artist's Berlin archive.

This is the first major retrospective dedicated to Berger, whose entire career, from the early 1970s to the present day, is covered in this Lugano project.

For the occasion, the halls of the noble floors of Villa Malpensata are returned, after almost thirty years, to the magic of natural light that fills the architecture, highlighting the sophisticated setting.

Owned by the MUSEC, following the closure of the exhibition, the works will constitute one of the most precious chapters of the «Esovisioni» cycle and will be presented in other European museums.
