Since 1990, Monica Studer and Christoph van den Berg have been developing computer-based works together, among which the project "Hotel Vue des Alpes" has been attracting particular attention since 2001. The core of the project is the Internet site www.vuedesalpes.com, where visitors can take a virtual holiday in an imaginary hotel in the Alps. The Alps, in Studer/van den Berg's case a comprehensive "set" of exclusively digitally produced set pieces from the pictorial history of the Swiss mountain world, serve as the starting point for a printed work and for spatial installations that revolve around the significance of image and spatial media in the digital age and that question the apparent break between old and new techniques of perception. For the present edition Studer/van den Berg combine four digital motifs with the heliogravure process. These are motifs which, due to their dominant light drama, have a strong photographic effect in the analogue printing process, although they are purely computer-generated constructions down to the last detail.

With Matias Spescha we are connected by a long-standing cooperation. An overview of his biography can be found in the edition sheet November 2004. The present work is the fourth multiple that Matias Spescha has realized for us. It is an iron frame with welded-in sheet iron, both painted by the artist. A large, irregularly ending form takes up most of the picture field and creates a tension between unity and openness, between the painted surface of the metal and the respective structure of the wall on which the multiple is hanging. The confrontation with space, an important theme in Spesha's work, acquires an additional conciseness in the three-dimensionality of the multiple.

Loredana Sperini embroiders her pictures on cotton fabrics with needle and black thread. Stitch after stitch, strokes and spots grow into shadows and surfaces, two-dimensional drawings into haptic half reliefs. Based on photographs taken of people she knows, she makes drawings that she abstracts and crystallizes excrescences of inner feelings. "Sometimes the embroidered zigzag lines also combine to form dynamic signs that act on us like energies of interpersonal movements. In this quiet touching and decided condensation, the latent uncanny becomes suspect, secret spaces open up" (A. Affentranger-Kirchrath). The three motifs presented here were embroidered by the Bischoff Textil AG company in St. Gallen on a special machine with fine cotton yarn on cotton batiste. A lot of manual work was necessary: manual creation of a technical drawing and conversion of the same into electronic data for the machine control, removal of the connecting threads, tensioning of the fabric and cutting out the motif, as well as the final hand rolling. The production required intensive cooperation between the textile company and the artist.

Hanns Schimansky works exclusively as a draughtsman and printmaker. Concentration and reduction in drawing are important to him; the relationship between surface, line and form interests him. The starting point for his abstract picture widths is the reality surrounding him. In the play with line and form, however, the figurative, narrative lies latently hidden and breaks through again and again. "The boundaries of the line and the surface are constantly removed. It is not only a matter of what a line can be and cause, how it appears and behaves, but also how it can be interpreted and felt." (John Sundkvist)

"Creatures of unknown origin, with velvety or rather furry surfaces, hairs, tentacles and openings float or swim through undefined spaces. Although they are inspired by observing nature, such as marine plants and animals in aquariums, they are not of this world, but must be placed in the artist's imagination." (Anita Haldemann)
