• Gesamtkunstwerk

    We believe art brings soul to space, which in turn provokes thought and conversation. Maison Haas Hustinx manifests a gesamtkunstwerk; combining the disciplines of fine arts, design and interior architecture. Through our commitment to rejuvenate the historical site and its colourful history, we have seen an extensive renovation process over the past few years, setting the foundations of the gesamtkunstwerk. As a continuation to the world exploring efforts and photographic work of Alphons Hustinx, we aim to let his spirit reverberate through our annual exhibitions.

  • Sabine Lintzen

    In a never-ending stream of glass objects, Sabine Lintzen (Aachen, 1956) attempts to structure and organise the world around her by fixating and materialising thoughts into glass. Focusing on DNA-structures, cell shapes and microorganisms, the blown glass captures light and colour and the forms interact with the environment and react with the movement of the spectator. Diverse perspectives continually uncover new connections and colour fields, resulting in a symbiosis between space and matter and light. Sabine Lintzen has acquired international recognition over the past few decades and her objects can be admired in exhibitions throughout Europe and beyond.

  • Anne Büscher

    With her experimental approach to the artistic process, each artwork by Anne Büscher (Stuttgart, 1991) can be seen as an artistic experiment in which she stretches the perceived reality of the involved materials and techniques. By bringing the unseen to our awareness, her work uncovers unperceived realities and thus broadens our perception. This happens through allowing for new possible ways of looking at reality or creating an awareness of transient materials such as the wind or daylight.

    A Tribute to Alphons Hustinx

    In March 1932, two Dutch photographers got into their Model A Ford to drive the 9,000 km trip east from Maastricht to Herat, Afghanistan. Their photographs and films captured a unique perspective of life during the 1930s in Turkey, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq and Persia; or modern-day Iran. A trained lawyer, and the son of an affluent banker, Alphons deviated from the anticipated norm to become a photojournalist, combining his passions for travel and photography. He was one of the first to master the intricate chemical process of colored photography - a feature now taken for granted by the click. Every photograph required close attention to the humidity, light and temperature for storing the negative roll films, as well as intricate chemical processes in dark room development. With these processes, he was able to transport realities of the places he visited to Dutch readers, through his work with newspapers such as De Maasbode and De Telegraaf. Despite the many logistical challenges along his journeys, Alphons managed to keep adapting his travel plans as he went, relying on his senses and the people he met along his way, making his travels all the more spontaneous and unexpected. Hustinx later traveled around South Africa when the country was in the midst of a crippling depression exacerbated by racial conflict. And through his lens, he uncovered and transported signs of future unrest in the country. Maison Haas Hustinx pays tribute to Alphons Hustinx, and aims to deliver a Manifesto to Maastricht, a city which has often succeeded in venturing into new places and stitching new realities into the fabric of the city.
