20-minute guided tour followed by a lunchtime snack
with Ayşegül Cihangir

Is that a little man in a cap looking into the void? Standing there as if waiting for something. If you step closer, you can see an oversized fingernail that belongs to a thumb beneath the jagged, reflective surface. It stretches out towards us like a phallus. Its platinum-plated surface is covered by a transparent band at the level of the upper phalanx, revealing the material used. Unusual for Erwin Eisch, who experimented with glass like no other and for whom the transparency of the glass was of no interest. Instead, Eisch used the glass like a canvas to capture his time-critical snapshots, often in a humorous way. The thumb from the series of mold-blown limbs from 1977 fits in with the current debate about the smartphone, which we would find difficult to use without thumbs.

Experience contemporary art in the compact format of a lunch break! The Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung’s Lunch Breaks offer intellectual nourishment and culinary delight at the BlackBox. The foundation’s team provides 20 minutes of insights into the current show on changing artworks and themes. Afterwards, there will be the opportunity to exchange ideas over a midday snack – either in the sculpture garden or the BlackBox, depending on the weather. The lunch snack is included in the ticket price.
