Salon Suisse Three: cultivating well


Salon Suisse: ATARAXIA

Salon Suisse Three: 'cultivating well'
by Koyo Kouoh (RAW-Material Company)

Palazzo Trevisan degli Ulivi, Dorsoduro, Venice, Italy
19-21 October 2017


How do foodstuffs carry stories of imperialism? Are our tastes fit for consumption? After 'euphony' and 'eating well', the third Salon Suisse brings together a series of interconnected discussions around Switzerland’s post- and decolonial condition, using for instance the potato plant as an unassuming, yet lucid example of a vegetal global migrancy. 
Organised by the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia and directed by curator Koyo Kouoh, the series of events reflect on the complexities of national identity bringing the notion of Ataraxia to the heart of the conversation.
