Alberto Giacometti - everything you need to know about his life and work on the Internet in English now.
Berne (ots) - Neue Zürcher Zeitung AG and swissinfo/Swiss Radio International (SRI) have joined forces to create a comprehensive English-language Internet site on the life and work of Alberto Giacometti: www.alberto-giacometti.ch/en.
Having created a German-language site to mark the Giacometti exhibition at Zurich's Kunsthaus, the Neue Zürcher Zeitung has now teamed up with swissinfo to have the site translated into English and expanded. The English-language site is being launched in time for the opening of the Giacometti retrospective at New York's Museum of Modern Art. The exhibition will be flanked by an event organized by the Swiss Institute on Broadway under the patronage of the Neue Zürcher Zeitung and swissinfo. The exhibition at the Swiss Institute shows photographs by Ernst Scheidegger from the life of Giacometti. In addition, a documentary film by Heinz Bütler entitled "Alberto Giacometti - eyes on the horizon" will be shown several times daily.
This joint website is the most important bookmark of the Giacometti year. Nowhere is Giacometti's 100th birthday celebrated more comprehensively in the web than by NZZ Online and swissinfo: the life, works, texts by and about Giacometti, a list of exhibitions in Europe and the USA, events and, above all, large videostreams. The Giacometti website presents the life and work of the probably most famous Swiss artist of the 20th century in vivid detail.
The site URL is: www.alberto-giacometti.ch/en
