The Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia is the organiser of «Salon Suisse», an official collateral event to the 17th International Architecture Exhibition – La Biennale Architettura in Venice. The series of lectures, debates and events set in Palazzo Trevisan offers opportunities to discuss architectural issues in a pleasant and stimulating atmosphere.
This year’s Salon Suisse, running under the heading Bodily Encounters, explores the fundamental connections between the human body and architecture. Our body functions as a crucial orientation and measurement system enabling us to experience space. Architecture for its part both protects and expands the body, and serves as a receptacle echoing individual and collective memories.
The first Salon Suisse event this year is scheduled for late summer. The provisional dates for this and the following events are:
Salon One: Thursday 16 September to Saturday 18 September 2021 (date subject to change)
Salon Two: Thursday 21 October to Saturday 23 October 2021
Salon Three: Thursday 18 November to Saturday 20 November 2021
Salonnière: Evelyn Steiner
Salonnière’s assistant: Viviane Ehrensberger Further information on biennials.ch.
