The aim of the exhibition "Hofstettenstrasse" is to provide a survey of current art from the region and offer a platform for the most varied of positions. The exhibition is an important opportunity both for younger and less known artists and for older already established ones.
To qualify for participation, the artists must be connected with the region of Thun by the fact that they were either born and grew up there, or live and work there. Application takes place by entering a portfolio of work is which is discussed and assessed by a jury of experts. The members of the jury are elected each year by a Fine Arts Commission (Kobik).
