Made on Föhr Photography from the Artist-in-Residence-Programme

13. June 2020 to 10. January 2021

Since 2010, the Museum Kunst der Westküste has been actively inviting artists to Alkersum as part of a residency programme. The exhibition for the first time presents a selection of works created as part of such residences.


For ten years now, the MKdW has been offering international artists whose work has a connection to the particular character of the museum the opportunity to be inspired by and work on the island of Föhr. So far, we have welcomed almost thirty international artists in residence. This year, the exhibition, which kicks of a new series, focuses on artists who work predominantly in the medium of photography. It illustrates the diversity and individuality of the resulting works in terms of artistic
perception and thematic conception.


The works presented are by Nicole Ahland, Elina Brotherus and Thomas Wrede.
