Hans Josephsohn

The exhibition pays tribute to Hans Josephsohn (1920-2012) on the occasion of the centenary of his birth. It focuses on a series of brass sculptures made between 1950 and 2006. These works exemplify the central role played by the human figure in Josephsohn’s art and document all the types that the artist himself used to classify his work: standing, seated and reclining figures, half-figures and reliefs. His works are on permanent display at the Museo La Congiunta in Giornico, inaugurated in 1992, and at the Kesselhaus Josephsohn in St Gallen, opened in 2003.
