Beat Streuli's pictures know the strategies that are required to make people look glamorous, yet they only make use of them as a way of framing what, in its profane beauty on the streets, is revealed to our sight unfiltered.
The protagonists that have liberated from the dynamics of the big city also signalize accessibility and the public – a signal that continues into the interior. Lightly and transparently mounted on glass walls, Streuli's large, wide-format images don't obstruct one's view, but, as a horizon, point to a cosmopolitan world outside in which those people live their everyday life, and which the boardrooms ultimately plan for.
