Three months after its foundation, the Kunst Halle is getting off to a brilliant start with a huge photogram in the Volksbad, designed by Swiss photo artist Balthasar Burkhard. Accompanied by Handel's water music, played backwards in two canoes by Ralph Hug and Norbert Möslang, as well as underwater sounds of compressed air by Andy Hug and numerous splashing children, the opening of the first exhibition takes place. 

Balthasar Burkhard (*1944, Bern/CH – 2010, Bern/CH) was a Swiss photographer.
