The Alex Hank Collection and Tarmak 22 present an exclusive work of art from 5 May to 6 June.
A 13-minute short film by the American pioneer Bruce Connor, which deals with the assassination of John F. Kennedy, will be played on a continuous loop in the gallery at Gstaad Airport, Saanen.
The "father of the video clip" worked on this project for four years. Today he is considered one of the most important artists of the 20th century. His work “REPORT, 1963-67" focuses less on the president himself than on the tragic event and its many interpretations by the mass media.
"There is so much fake news – even and especially in times of Corona. Different media convey different views," explains Elizabeth Aisher Crespi, daughter of Tarmak 22 co-founder Antonia Crespi. Conner combines archival film and radio footage. "It's actually a contemporary commentary on the news," summarises the art student.
Antonia Crespi emphasises that the short film is open to everyone: "There is no entrance fee to visit, nor does it require any prior artistic knowledge." It is simply about experiencing art and culture.
