Photo exhibition Karl Max Kessler Archive Naturhotel Chesa Valisa****s

Special art exhibition in the Nature Hotel Chesa Valisa

Photo exhibition of the Karl Max Kessler Archive in the Naturhotel Chesa Valisa

We are very pleased that Bettina and Mathias Kessler are opening this special art exhibition at the Naturhotel Chesa Valisa.

Not only the new pictures from the temporary exhibition will be shown and explained on this day, but also the story of your grandfather and what motivates the two grandchildren to put his life's work back in what, in our opinion, exactly the right light.

He will also accompany the opening. With his photographs from the beginning of the 19th century to 1960, he documented the development of the Kleinwalsertal from an agricultural society to an important tourist resort. About 10,000 glass negatives in 10x15 cm format still survive from his extensive work.

With the Karl Max Kessler Archive, the grandchildren Bettina and Mathias Kessler have set themselves the task of cleaning, restoring, digitizing these negatives and thus making them publicly accessible.

In addition, a connection to the present should be established through an “Artist in Residence” program and art projects. In 2024, none other than the international artist David Brooks (NY-City) will be a guest at the nature hotel Chesa Valisa in the second half of June.
