Update on the Salon Suisse at the 2021 Biennale Architettura

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 23 September to Saturday 25 September 2021
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.
