James Bond & Pin-Ups

Davide Cascio and Peter Staempfli

Kunstmusem Thun
24 September - 20 November 2011

"The James Bond & Pin-Ups exhibition at the Kunstmuseum Thun portrays two artists from different generations. Both are united in their interest, in very different ways, in the history of the Pop Art style through the 1960s and 70s. Peter Staempfli (born in 1937 in Deisswil) is one of the most well-known Swiss representatives of this stylistic movement. Davide Cascio (born in 1976 in Lugano) draws inspiration for his work from the ideas of popular culture and the history of architecture and design from this period, transporting them into the present in a completely new form.
