Shadow Dance

The Paths of Louis Soutter
Published by Diogenes as Schattentanz
Original Title: Schattentanz

In 1923, on account of his exorbitant lifestyle, the musician and artist Louis Soutter is committed to a Swiss mental institution by his family. Only his famous cousin Le Corbusier stands by him. Soutter's pictures are unsettling and ignored by the art world of his time. Le Corbusier, both disconcerted and fascinated, becomes intertangled with this archaic art and the convoluted life paths that have led Soutter to this point.

Charles Linsmayer / Schaffhauser Nachrichten, Schaffhausen

»With great empathy, Lukas Hartmann succeeds in showing how Louis Soutter created a wonderfully disturbing work out of his ›insuitability for life‹.«
