Annelies Štrba has been photographing mainly children since the age of 15, later her own family, especially her three children Sonja, Samuel and Linda, and now also her granddaughter. In addition to portraits of people, she later also took pictures of towns and gardens and parks. From 1997 to 2005 Štrba works only with the video camera. The resulting films are reworked by the artist and individual video styles are isolated to form independent works of art. Annelies Štrba's works are characterized by an exceptionally subjective inner view of the world. It is the feminine par excellence that the artist is always interested in and that she evokes in her often dreamlike and magical worlds. For the VFO Annelies Štrba has realized two works from the current cycle "Wonder" as inkjet prints based on video stills.

For the group exhibition "Positionen zeitgenössischer Druckgrafik" at the Gewerbemuseum Winterthur, Vreni Spieser has realized a new spatial intervention "schön ausmalen 2" (illustrations previous page). With a series of ten offset lithos with ornamental patterns and animal motifs, she wallpapered the entire walls of the museum corridor as a prelude to the exhibition. The artist provides visitors with coloured pencils with which they can colour in the wallpaper according to their own taste and preferences. With "Schön ausmalen 2", Spieser is continuing an essential theme of her artistic intentions of recent years, as she increasingly works in a space-related manner in order to capture, highlight, charge or even turn the atmosphere of a place. The 10 offset lithographs shown below were the basis for the installation "schön ausmalen 2" in the Gewerbemuseum. Thirty of these sets of 10 are available.

At the gold edge opens a fantastically wondrous eerie world. Flower buds directly in front of the eyes, at the same time looking deeply down on a moving surface - the viewer imaginatively enters a world that is both real and fantastic at the same time. This tension-filled space is created through the targeted use of different techniques, whereby the sensual and tactile aspects are worked out and put in relation to each other. Drawing, painting, photography, digitally produced and lithographic elements are questioned as to their appearance.

In her photographic work, Katrin Freisager deals with the staging of invented worlds. Mostly these are stagings of bodies and the space surrounding them. Her works often deal with the question of what identity could be today. Her figures and spaces are projection surfaces for both individual and social sensations. The questioning of orders and our habitual perception plays a central role. In Freisager's pictures, realism and fiction merge into a strangely floating and at the same time objective mood. The present work "Wunderland" deals with the subjective perception of places. Seen from the perspective of a small being close to the ground, everything becomes huge. The dimensions change and are no longer assignable. The pictures invite us to dive into a mysterious, fairy-tale world of our own imagination.

Burkhard captures neither special events nor spectacular phenomena in his photographs. The repertoire of his motifs consists of the most elementary subjects, which he reproduces without any claim to allegorical exaggeration in the picture as what they are: Body, city, plant, landscape. For him, the simple, unmediated view of the things of the world is a reference to the universal, gigantic, incomprehensible that is hidden behind external phenomena (Anette Schaffer). - Balthasar Burkhard's black-and-white photographs are characterized by sharpness, attention to detail and perfect craftsmanship. Nevertheless, his works are not to be understood as technical reproductions of views of reality, but rather as an examination of the artistic achievements of the photographic medium. The motifs of the present heliogravures were created in Japan in 2005 in connection with the "Two Mountains" project: the Japanese photographer Naoya Hatekeyama travelled to the Swiss Alps, while Balthasar Burkhard explored the pilgrim paths in the mountain world of Kumano and Mount Koya.
