Prague Quadrennial

Competition for the Swiss contribution 2019

Submissions only via myprohelvetia

Deadline for applications for the first round: 7 January 2018 midnight


Pro Helvetia invites scenographers, visual artists, designers, architects and other practitioners from the field of «performance design» to participate in a competition for the Swiss contribution to the «Exhibition of Countries and Regions» of the 14th edition of the Prague Quadrennial (Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space).

The Swiss contribution, preferably the result of the work by a transdisciplinary team, represents a relevant and topical input for the international discourse on scenography (performance design) and for the practice of scenography in Switzerland. It places emphasis on scenography regarded as a constitutive and determining principle rather than as an element at the service of dramaturgy, staging or of a concept.

The competition is open to teams of persons residing in Switzerland and /or active in Switzerland in the visual arts, theatre, design and architecture or in associated fields. The competition will follow a two-phase procedure, with a first open preselection round, followed by a second round where three teams will be chosen to develop and expand their projects.
