.ftlbr ist the new exhibition format on the upper floor, which presents jung photographic and experiemental positions. It is thought to be a photo lab and a stage for young artists. In the first edition Erik Kessels, creative director of the agency KesselsKramer, explores with students of the ECAl/University of Art and Design Lausanne, what becomes possible if you dare to blame yourself.
The basic idea oft he project is: Embarrassment is important. If you’re not willing to humiliate yourself and make mistakes, you won’t make progress and rest in your safe zone. For the Embarrassment Show Kessels requests the students in their second academic year to explore their limits, to embarrasse themselves, to checkout their possibilities and to tell a personal and risky story.
