Project Room

Video programme PROJECT ROOM

As part of the Switzerland Guest of Honour programme, the Project Room provides a forum for video art produced by 25 Swiss women artists from different generations. It conceptually brings together the history of art and Swiss civil history: the arrival of this new medium in Switzerland in the 70s coincided with women acquiring the right to vote, which was introduced on a federal level in February 1971.
