Salon Suisse: Bodily Encounters

Collateral event of the 17th International Architecture Exhibition - La Biennale di Venezia

Palazzo Trevisan degli Ulivi, Campo S.Agnese, Dorsoduro 810, Venice, Italy

Following the tradition of the Salon and its claim of reigniting a culture of stimulating debate and social encounter in an agreeable ambience, the manifold encounters between body and architecture are examined from different perspectives, concentrating on three topics. At the first Salon in September, the emphasis is on viewing built structures as animated independent organisms, the spatial gestures of which enter into a dialogue with the human being. The Salon in October focuses on how architecture creates standardised realities that define our co-existence. Within the third and last Salon in November, bodily alterations and optimisation measures like body hacking or anti-ageing procedures are assessed and adapted to architectural discourse. Consistent with its broad approach, Salon Suisse deals with a multitude of disciplines and themes, including psychoanalysis, medical anthropology, neurosciences, literature, interior design, transhumanism, fluid spaces, habitation and migration, borderscapes, mood-sensitive houses, and many more.
