Seit 1986 zeigen wir in unserer Galerie, die immer schon unkonventionell arbeitete, Ausstellungen zeitgenössischer Künstlerinnen und Künstler, deren Sprache und Herangehensweise an Räume, Phänomene und Fragen der Zeit uns interessiert. Begonnen haben wir in der Galleria Periferia in Poschivo, am Rand unseres Landes; seit 1992 befinden sich die Galerie und der Verlag in Luzern.

In his new book, Urs Lüthi looks back on 40 years of artistic production. The publication deals not only with his individual works and installations but also with his impressive roster of exhibitions. These range from «Thought Processes Made Visible» (1970) and «Transformer» (1974), both curated by Jean-Christophe Ammann, to the Biennale in Venice (2001) and, most recently, his major retrospective at the Lucerne Museum of Fine Art (2009). Lüthi’s wide-ranging oeuvre demonstrates the importance of exhibition design in presenting his work. Printed on thin paper, the substantial publication contains 500 reproductions and several essays on various aspects of the artist’s oeuvre.

In his 2009 and 2010 retrospectives that toured several international museums, Urs Lüthi consolidated his position as one of the most distinctive representatives of international art. In SPACES, fullcolor, largeformat photographs present a chronology of the artist’s treatment of space, complementing the outofprint publication Art is the better life. Viewers are wordlessly conducted through the rooms, installations and environs of Lüthi’s most important international exhibitions since 2009. When the artist situates a work in a room, he does not simply change it; he incorporates it temporarily into the work itself. This applies not only to large and extensive presentations but also to the carefully deliberated placement of a small work. Lüthi occupies and appropriates the spaces of his works in a fashion that overcomes the selfreferential threshold between the viewer and the artist, who often figures as the subject matter of his own works.

 The exhibition and book SPACES were on view in 2011 at the Centre culturel suisse in Paris and 2012 im Brandts Museet for Fotokunst, Odense.
