The Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia is the organiser of «Salon Suisse», an official collateral event of the 17th International Architecture Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia. 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» entitled 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 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
