Organised by the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia, the «Salon Suisse» consists of a series of lectures, talks and cultural events, it provides an opportunity to explore architecture in a stimulating atmosphere.
Directed by architectural historian Marcel Bächtiger, cultural theorist Tim Kammasch and architect Stanislas Zimmermann, with the support of local Salonnière Laura Tinti, this year’s programme is an invitation to take a journey. If architecture is an island within the archipelago of the artistic and scientific disciplines, then the Salon is a ship
that has left the harbour. From foreign shores, the «Salon Suisse» will look back at architecture and explore its current cultural and social relevance.
The «Salon Suisse» programme features three subsequent weekends of events, taking place in the evenings at 6.30 pm from Thursday to Saturday.
Salon 1 (opening event): Thursday 24 May 2018 at 6.30 pm
Salon 2: Thursday 13 September to Saturday 15 September 2018
Salon 3: Thursday 4 October to Saturday 6 October 2018
Salon 4: Thursday 22 November to Saturday 24 November 2018
