URS LÜTHI
Urs Lüthi (Lucerne, Switzerland, 1947) Lives and works in Munich. Essentially, he is known as a Body
Art artist; nevertheless, he has developed a very personal way of making art, through expressionist-
abstract painting. Urs Lüthi has always focused his research on the issue of identity, investigating his
own image with irony and wit. From an autobiographical, subjective, experience, he achieves a social
and existential critique that embraces the whole community. Inspired by Duchamp's Rrose Sèlavy, the
artist address matters such as sexual ambiguity and the Myth of the Androgynous, the faultless being
that is both masculine and femenine. For Lüthi, disguise means breaking the taboo of sexuality,
crossing identity barriers and playing with the relation between reality and fiction, associated in a
continuous reference of meaning. Subjectivity and objectivity are related notions, what matters is to
be able to make visible the innumerable aspects under which reality is manifested. Urs Lüthi's artistic
research is distinguished by the remarkable agility with which the artist moves in different fields of
expression. His work is presented as an extremely multifaceted set, both because he uses the most
varied mediatic pattern, and because he moves on the most diverse expressive levels.
Solo exhibitions of his work have been organized in important institution all around the world such as:
Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; Kunsthaus, Zürich; The Winterthur Museum of Art, Winterthur;
Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago; Le Centre Pompidou, París; Nationalgalerie and Neue Berliner
Kunstverein, Berlin; Musée d'Art Contemporain, Lyon; Hara Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo;
Kunsthalle, Wien; Ludwig Museum, Budapest; Santiago Museum of Contemporary Art, Santiago de
Chile; Tate Modern, London; Palais de Tokyo and Musée d'Orsay, París; Kunstmuseum Luzern,
Lucerne; MARTa, Herford; Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia; MAMC, Saint-Étienne;
MAMCO, Geneva, Parkview Museum, Singapur; Palazzo Grassi - Punta della Dogana, Venice; and
MOCA, Toronto.
Lüthi has participated in international art events including: Trigon '73, Graz (Austria, 1973); 13. São
Paulo Biennial (Brazil, 1975); Documenta 6, Kassel (Germany, 1977); Sydney Biennale (Australia, 1978);
