Sonnenstube

The principle of hospitality is at the heart of the residency project presented by the itinerant collective Sonnenstube. Issuing an invitation to all the participants in the Swiss Art Awards 2022, Souvenir Souvenir is a chance to spend a short time in Italian-speaking Switzerland, in close contact with the local cultural scene and the region: an opportunity to discover new, transdisciplinary, intergenerational and multilingual ways of living together and try out new forms of dialogue and exchange for the future. The experiences that emerge from this intense, extended and unpredictable series of residencies will be gathered together and shared, either physically or virtually, during the Swiss Art Awards 2022, via NADA, the caravan that serves as a mobile base for Sonnenstube.
