Wer am Strom der Zeit sitzt
…hört das Herz der Kunst schlagen

This summer, we are honored that Tine Klein has agreed to enrichen our Training Room Zürich West with her work. Art should inspire and provoke a conversation:

Die Dinge die im Strom der Zeit an uns vorbeiziehen, gebannt auf Holz, Stein, Leinwand oder Bierdeckel. Eine Kunst die jeden von uns etwas angeweht, weil sie das nachfühlt, was alltäglich an uns vorbeiströmt.

Mit Leidenschaft werden tote Dinge lebendig, gebannt durch ein paar Striche mit Tusche, dem ältesten Kunstmaterial der Welt.

Doch modern und zeitgemäß wirken die Kunstwerke auf den unterschiedlichsten Materialien, gerade weil die Künstlerin Natürliches und Alltägliches kraftvoll neu zusammensetzt.

The things that pass us by in the stream of time, captured on wood, stone, canvas or coasters. An art that each of us is blowing something because they feel the effect of what daily flows past us. / With passion dead things come to life, captured by a few strokes with ink, the oldest arts material in the world. / But modern and contemporary works of art act on a variety of materials, precisely because the artist natural and commonplace reassembles powerful.

Who should attend?
