S.O.S. DADA at the 56th Venice Biennale

 

Running concomitantly to the exhibition at the Pavilion of Switzerland at the 56th International Art Exhibition – la Biennale di Venezia, the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia organizes a Collateral Event entitled „Salon Suisse“. The „Salon Suisse“, now in its fourth year, is a programme of events and talks offering a platform for exchange on contemporary art and thought in a relaxed atmosphere.

 

S.O.S. DADA – The World Is A Mess

 

Responsible for this year’s „Salon Suisse“ are the two Dada-specialists Juri Steiner and Stefan Zweifel, who have put together an ambitious programme of events focusing on Dada’s cross-epochal force and timelessness, exploring the past, present and future of Dada.

 

„Salon Suisse“ is sending out its own S.O.S. DADA to explore the Dionysian power of Dada with guests from all over the world at the historical Palazzo Trevisan degli Ulivi over the course of five weekends. The opening event takes place on 9 May at 11am outdoors in front of the Palazzo Trevisan.
