In an experimental turn, Galerie Stephanie asks 20 local artists of diverse strains and practices to create artworks with only one restriction – they must use acrylic glass.

Like many revolutionary inventions, the material also known as Plexiglas, Perspex, Lucite, or Polymethyl metacrylate, was first used as an instrument of warfare – it replaced glass in submarine periscopes, aircraft windshields, and gun turrets. Today, it becomes a multitude of windows into the perspectives of each artist in Synthetic Visions; a flexible, versatile, plastic medium for experimentation.
