Exercise in the fresh air, explore charming landscapes and discover art at the same time: If that doesn’t promise surprising experiences!” This is how the Swiss Post describes the corresponding offers on the “Discover Art” website. Those who appreciate nature and art will get their money’s worth at the “Art in the Periphery” events, supported by Swiss Post.
Especially in the summer, the “Art in the Periphery” events attract visitors away from the hustle and bustle of the city for exciting excursions, it says. And it continues: “The events usually take place outdoors and are not profit-oriented. Works by artists are shown who, upon invitation, deal with the respective location and create works with a special connection to the place. The events can be explored as the mood takes you, alone, with children, four-legged friends and acquaintances. Remote places thus experience a stimulating added value, people from the city discover the landscape and the local population is given a new perspective.”
Among the offers are, for example:
Ennetbürgen Sculpture Park is an outdoor exhibition of sculptures in the municipality of Ennetbürgen; right next to Buochs airfield. The exhibition is open all year round, freely accessible and wheelchair accessible.
“Common ground”can mean a shared space or a space where it’s possible to communicate and reach a consensus. But which people have the resources to make their voices heard? This year’s Weiertal Biennale focuses on this question: it’s about social and environmental justice, and how closely they are linked. The exhibition will run until 19 September 2023.
At this exhibition in the park Seleger Moor in the hidden natural pearls of the Knonauer Amts, fifteen positions can be discovered until 31.10.2023. In the midst of this unique plant world, young and old are offered easy, spontaneous access to contemporary art and culture. Site-specific objects and space-related interventions enter into a dialogue with each other in this fairytale atmosphere. The works react to this special place in terms of content, form, material and colour.
One of the first five interdisciplinary, cross-border and cross-generational experimental nature festivals of the “Art+Culture Fusion” in Switzerland is now celebrating its 20th anniversary – WELCOME young and old! (from 9.9. to 1.12.2023)
