Performance Art in Switzerland


“In Switzerland, cultural scenes are very often grouped around a language, and this is the case with performance art. Since Andrea works and lives in the German part of Switzerland and Madeleine in the French part, the interviews focus respectively on these two language areas. We interviewed and questioned one another, then each tried to write about the other as performance art spectator, maker and curator. We wish to give you an insight into different perspectives on performance art, into specific encounters and fields of action involving performance art and the performative in Switzerland.”
– Madeleine Amsler and Andrea Saemann
