Overcoming. Art Practices for the New Normal
16 settembre 2020

A series of four free workshops led by four artists devoted to public art and social practice, who employ an authentic, credible, and transparent approach to involve a young audience in a process of change and emancipation.


The Peggy Guggenheim Collection, with the participation of Swatch Art Peace Hotel, artist recidency open in Shanghai in 2011 thanks to Swatch president Nick Hayek, presents a series of four workshops for young adults by internationally renowned artists. The project asks young artists to challenge their own practice by creating workshops which should become virtuous activators of community processes, and catalysts of actions to re-appropriate spaces and to redefine social paradigms.

Serving the future instead of recording the past.

The project is all the more significant under the present circumstances caused by the pandemic, which have led to a reformulation of priorities in communities on a global level. Workshops take into consideration current sanitary measures, such as social distancing, restrictions on gatherings and on accessing places, and online meeting opportunities. Therefore, workshops will take place both online and offline.
