Zeller van Almsick presents the first joint exhibition of Wolfgang Lehrner and Beat Streuli. The two artists have known each other for over 15 years, communicate regularly and, from time to time, meet each other in one of the world’s most vibrant and pulsating cities. Together they have lost their way in the streets of London, at different times, in different places, but with similar thoughts. London is undoubtedly the metropolis that was instrumental for the rise of globalisation. Its identity is rooted in the idea that a city can be a cosmopolitan melting pot, a global trading centre and at the same time a place where everyone tolerates everyone. At least most of the time. In hardly any other city has being different become so commonplace. The idea: that it is something unique to be one with the rest of the world. How does London respond when this idea increasingly comes under pressure?
