Memory of Light – Light of Memory
29 October 2022 – 2 April 2023, Kunstmuseum St.Gallen
Alexander Hahn (*1954, Rapperswil) has worked in the electronic and digital media arts in Europe and America since 1981. He transforms events from his personal life, history, art, and science into video art, making use of the inner worlds of memories and dreams. After his solo exhibition The Bernoulli Itinerary in 1991, he will now present an overview of his work at the forefront of developments in new media.
The artist completed his degree in art education at the Zurich University of the Arts in 1979 and took part in the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program in New York in 1981. He lives and works in Zurich and New York. Hahn’s works have been shown in numerous solo and group exhibitions and at film festivals in New York, Zurich, Sydney, Berlin, Beijing, and New Delhi, and has received numerous awards. He has had major retrospectives at the Kunstmuseum Solothurn in Switzerland, the Museum der Moderne in Salzburg, Austria, and the Padiglione d’Arte Moderna in Ferrara, Italy.
