Grand Tour with ECAL in Venice

ECAL/University of Art and Design Lausanne in Switzerland is the guest of the 2021 edition of Grand Tour, the yearly appointment dedicated to sharing best practices, ideas and goals among museums and cultural institutions. As part of the Palazzo Grassi fall exhibition activities focused on the languages of performance, video art and photography, ECAL confronts scholars and the public of the Venetian universities on some ongoing research projects of the Swiss school, related to the reflection on video art between the 1960s and 1980s, the representation of the forms of youth in the visual arts and the relationship between text and image in Concrete poetry. Conferences, conversations and workshops are the different ways of transmitting knowledge that the Grand Tour wishes to offer as an opportunity for exchange and at the same time test as forms of knowledge production. This event is part of the 200th anniversary of ECAL (1821-2021).
