Under discussion – AAKU

AAKU (Aargau’s cultural magazine)

«Let’s talk about art» is the motto of 4th edition of the cross-border exhibition «kunst lokal rheinfelden». Dora Freiermuth from Laufenburg shows objects that convey an amazing illusion of reality. Bettina Costa, artist from Rheinfelden, born in Argentina, deals with her place of residence in a humorously provocative way. She wants to show striking corners of the «Zähringer» town in a different way: as absurd or grotesque backdrops. Her photo collages «Rheinfelden Surreal» are an invitation to rediscover the town.

In addition to discourses on art and conversations with artists, the focus is on local references. Questions about identity and localisation, about society and its responsibility are on the agenda.
