Cahiers d'Artistes


Pro Helvetia is committed to raising international awareness of contemporary art made in Switzerland. We support exhibitions, events and publications in the fields of art (including photography and media art), architecture and design.

This involves a wide range of activities. With our «Cahiers d’Artistes» series, we make it possible for artists to publish a first monograph to their name. Emerging young artists are supported by measures enabling them to display their work at exhibitions and expos and to go on residencies. Talented young photographers are backed by financial contributions towards the publication of photo books as well as by mentoring programmes. We support outreach projects that foster artistic practice and knowledge exchange. And we are responsible for the Swiss Pavilion and the «Salon Suisse» in Palazzo Trevisan at the Venice Art Biennale.

On request we organise research trips for curators from abroad and help them forge ties with the Swiss arts scene. In cooperation with foreign cultural institutions, we also facilitate exchange between Swiss curators and art practitioners from around the globe.
