Alexander Hahn

Memory of Light – Light of Memory

29 October 2022 – 2 April 2023, Kunstmuseum St. Gallen


Alexander Hahn (*1954, Rapperswil) works in the electronic and digital media arts in Europe and America. Since 1981, he has transformed events from his personal life, history, and science into art, making use of the inner worlds of the psyche, memories, and dreams.

He integrates the time-based forms of video with the practice of computer-generated imagery. His art is distinguished by the expression of these images, animation, virtual reality, installations, and writing about new media. After his first solo exhibition The Bernoulli Itinerary (1991) and numerous contributions to media-based exhibitions, the Kunstmuseum St. Gallen is now presenting an overview of his fascinating work at the forefront of media art with a focus on the Indian Cycle, which was made possible by a grant from Pro Helvetia and the Canton of St. Gallen.
