Touch Me captures scenes in dance courses, amusement parks and cruise ships in Sweden. In all these places people gather to dance to “dansbandsmusik” (Swedish for dance band music). 


Tobias Dostal

Sixth Horst-Janssen graphic arts award winner of the Claus Hüppe-foundation

In 2017, the Horst Janssen Museum in cooperation with the Claus Hüppe Stiftung is presenting its sixth graphic arts award winner, Tobias Dostal (*1982). With his drawings, Dostal, a student of Schlingensief, succeeds in producing moving images and fascinating filmic illusions. Transformations of human beings, animals, and objects are animated in a surprising way and shown on projection devices that the artist develops himself. References to the early years of cinema are unmistakable. The exhibition publication provides a fascinating look at the astonishing combination of the very diverse media of drawing, film, and installation, which Tobias Dostal brings together in a technically ingenious and simultaneously poetic way.
