Franz Gertsch is normally reluctant to be observed while he is working, but in 2009 he allowed the camera to record him creating 'Winter'. The eight-minute piece, filmed in his studio by Maria Gertsch-Meer and edited by Renate Gertsch, was completed in 2011 and will be shown in the film room of the Kunsthaus Zürich during exhibition opening hours.
Public guided tours of the exhibition on Sundays at 11 a.m. and Wednesdays at 6 p.m. (price CHF 6).
Private English tours can be booked now by calling 044 253 84 84.
Available in English, German and French. Included in admission price.
