October 2 until November 5 2023

In an first pilot phase, we are also opening our guest studio to curators from French- or Italian-speaking Switzerland who would like to develop an exhibition project with artists or designers from German-speaking Switzerland. With this residency opportunity we would like to support the creative exchange and collaboration between the different language regions of Switzerland. Two curators have been selected for a residency of about one month each: Danniel Tostes from Geneva and Giada Olivotto from Ticino.
