Past Tense: Contemporary Korean Ceramics

Neumarkt 17, Brunngasskeramik, PS-Studio


For many Korean ceramists, Yung-Jae Lee’s 2006 exhibition ‘1111 Schalen’ at the Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich stands as a defining moment in contemporary craft.

Hans Aeschbach * 1911 - † 1999
The search for perfection in imperfection - Hans Aeschbach and his companions Walter Binder, Louis Conne and Otto Teucher

Wabi (poverty) represents the will to simplicity and the rejection of the magnificent and ostentatious. Sabi (patina) denotes contentment with the given conditions of life, the acceptance that everything is subject to impermanence.  > more

It began with a simple inventory project project aimed at the systematic documentation of Hans Aeschbach's works.  > more

Poetry of Transformation – Hans Aeschbach + Daniel Zimmerman

August 26 to September 11 2022
Galerie Milchhütte, Zumikon


Changes of state, such as growth and shrinkage, are biological phenomena that Aeschbach often translates into his pictorial compositions. He understands kinetic energy as the impetus for shape change, which is already evident in his works from the 1930s, when metamorphosis was a popular pictorial theme for him.
