The spring semester has started

The first courses have started and we are already busy painting, drawing, sculpting and performing in our rooms. New and topical are our children's studio on Saturdays and our Haetti project with Marina Tomic. But more about that at the end. Fortunately, not all courses start quite so early and you can still register. You are lucky! Because the topics are very tempting: You want to make figures move? Or capture moments with your camera? Or use sunlight to capture mysterious shadow images on paper? It's all possible at K'Werk Zug. Take a look and discover our courses!

Homage to Haetti

Graphic artist, type designer and artist Walter F. Heattenschweiler

Anyone who lives in the city of Zug has certainly encountered his work. In particular, he is anchored in our logo, which consists of parts of his writings. So we are also involved in the supporting programme of the currently running Hommage in Zug.

Inspired by an experimental workshop at K'werk Zug and the exhibition "Haettenschweiler von A-Z" at the Museum für Gestaltung Zürich, 3 young people with Marina Tomic immersed themselves in the analogue world of letters, typographies and communication of the Zug designer and put on two performances.

Haetti Performance «Crescendo»

For the digital audio performance we created a new setting in which three typewriters supposedly set the pace. However, the machines themselves are placed as objects in the space and remain static and silent, while the sound of the projected audio recording in the background is reminiscent of a time when the artist and type designer himself was active.

The digital performance took place on the occasion of the opening during a guided tour of the city on 9 March in the former Hirschensaal. You can find the documentation of the process on our Vimeo channel.

Haetti Performance «Kartonage»

You missed the last performance? You're in luck, because tomorrow the second part will take place:

Saturday, March 18, Hirschensaal, 16:00

We'd love you to come and enjoy the performance with us. And have a chat afterwards.

Your K'werk Zug-Team
