Salon Suisse 2018

The «Salon Suisse»

The «Salon Suisse» offers a series of lectures, talks and cultural events supplementing the Pavilion of Switzerland at La Biennale di Venezia.

The events take place at the Palazzo Trevisan degli Ulivi during the opening week of the Biennale Architettura 2018 in May followed by 3 subsequent weekends in September, October and November.

This year’s «Salon Suisse» will present «En marge de l’architecture: Encounters beyond the discipline» by architectural historian Marcel Bächtiger, cultural theorist Tim Kammasch, and architect Stanislas Zimmermann with the support of local Salonnière Laura Tinti.

The events will tackle the importance of the disciplines bordering architecture, such as art, film, literature, urbanism, philosophy. Using the metaphor of a sailing expedition which stops in different islands (i.e. disciplines), the «Salon Suisse» hopes to open up the discourse surrounding the architecture of the 21st century.
