LOUIS AGASSIZ (1807-2013): EINE HEIMSUCHUNG EXHIBITION
  

During a two month summer artist residency at the Neue Shed art space in Frauenfeld, Switzerland, Sasha Huber extended her body of work Demounting Louis Agassiz with a performative installation piece. The exhibition took place during 7.9.–18.10.2013.

The resulting first solo exhibition in Switzerland combines Huber’s existing and newly expanding works. Works consist of a series of commissioned photographs (Evidence, 2013) and video installation work (My Racism is a Humanism. A lecture, 2013). Huber continues her series of haunting staple works mimicking places named after Louis Agassiz with a performed and screened lecture on his impersonated convictions.
