Contact

Far from home, away from one’s own studio, familiar environment and every-day routine, new ideas and projects can arise, and art can evolve in a different and unexpected direction. Together with our liaison offices in Egypt, India, China and South Africa, we offer Swiss art practitioners the possibility of a residency in one of these countries. In return, artists from abroad are given an opportunity to come to Switzerland for a residency stay. Here you will find pictures, videos, interviews, texts and more with and by our residency artists from all over the world.
