Biennale Bregaglia 2024

The third edition of Biennale Bregaglia explores the topic «Architecture and Gardens». After an open dialogue with the local population, the curator has chosen the Swiss village of Bondo as the main venue for the exhibition. In architecture, it boasts many types of buildings as well as a variety of construction and decoration techniques. Its dense architectural identity extends as far as urban planning: The village is located on a main road linking the southern and northern Alps and is characterized by significant civil and hydraulic engineering works due to the relief and dynamics of the landscape. Equally rich is its cultivated landscape: from gardens to vegetable gardens of various sizes, Bondo also lives among fields and forests. The redevelopment work that began after the landslide (2017) and continues to this day is changing both: the architectural and landscape identity of Bondo. It also provides many insights into the social, economic, political and religious structure of the place.

An ­international selection committee has chosen 10 site-specific projects by national and international artists. The artists are: Kotoaki Asano, Lisa Collomb, Athene Galiciadis, Georg Gatsas, Marcel Herbst, Piero Maspoli, Juliana Rios Martinez, Lea Schaffner, Ines Marita Schärer, and Jonathan Steiger.
