Alexander Tutsek - Stiftung

Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung
The Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung sponsors art and science. Alexander Tutsek and Dr. Eva-Maria Fahrner-Tutsek established the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung as a nonprofit foundation in December 2000 in Munich. As part of its program spanning art and science, the foundation is deeply committed to the particular and exceptional or even to that which is neglected and overlooked.

Exhibitions and Art Collection
In its internationally oriented exhibition and collecting activities, the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung concentrates on contemporary sculpture and photography. It regularly presents exhibitions on innovative themes. The former sculpture studio in an art nouveau villa in Munich-Schwabing, where the foundation is located, offers an ideal background. Of particular interest is that the sculptures in its collection are made of glass. This material allows artists diverse technical possibilities and innovative applications.

Support of Young Talents
In 2016 the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung started a substantial funding program to assist in improving the training of art students in the area of sculpture focusing on glass. The respective departments at art academies and glass schools receive comprehensive financial support from the foundation over a period of several years. This support makes the realization of special student projects, the production of complex art works, as well as adequate technical facilities in the studios possible. Several projects also fund the advanced training of individual artists who work with the material glass or in the area of photography.

Support of Institutions
The Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung also supports art projects and art museums with extraordinary endeavors. For example: The Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung has started a long-term cooperation with Haus der Kunst providing substantial and comprehensive support. In addition it funds innovative photographic exhibitions at Haus der Kunst. It also financed the acquisition of photographs for the photographic collection of Pinakothek der Moderne and supports a new series of exhibitions on current positions of international contemporary photographic art. This gives young artists working in the area of photography a unique forum.
