Züst & Bachmeier is among the sponsors of the eleventh edition of the Biennale dell’Immagine which takes place from 5 October to 8 December 2019 at the Spazio Officina in Chiasso.
Swiss and international photographers explore and interpret the CRASH theme. CRASH wants to tell a world of contradictions, of opposite positions, of complex movements, which inevitably result in a collision.
The Bienniale is articulated between different locations: the Spazio Officina proposes a journey through the shots of the Ukrainian photographer Boris Mikhailov with the exhibition entitled “TEMPTATION OF DEATH“; the Sala Diego Chiesa in which the black and white photographs of the policeman and Swiss photographer Arnold Odermatt are exhibited, previously presented with great success at the Venice Biennale in 2001. It continues with the photography students of the renowned ECAL – Ecole cantonale d’art of Lausanne, who manifest their dreams with an outdoor exhibition, in Piazza dei Colori (in Via Soave); Chiasso Culture in movimento participates in the Biennale of Image with a creation by the Swiss artist Aline d’Auria that involved some immigrant citizens in Chiasso from Eastern European countries. On the other hand the m.a.x. Museum dedicates its exhibition to the father of Italian advertising poster with an exhibition entitled Marcello Dudovich (1878 – 1962) and photography, a graphic journey in the advertising of the first half of the twentieth century. The Cons Arc gallery opens its exhibition spaces to Karin Borghouts, the Belgian artist who dedicated her career to exploring the architectural environment, with a style that combines visual art and photography.
Furthermore, for this eleventh edition, the Biennale dell’Immagine will collaborate with Frequenze: an initiative designed to strengthen the economy of Chiasso and in particular of Corso San Gottardo. For the occasion, the Frequenze spaces will host galleries and art associations temporarily away from the whole Canton.
Other exhibitions are scheduled in Mendrisio, Ligornetto, Bruzella and in various municipalities of the italian part of Switzerland: there are over 20 public and private exhibition spaces, each with a different and original perspective on the CRASH theme. An interesting program of meetings, screenings and seminars accompanies the exhibition program.
