Sommerakademie 2013

Every year in August, the Sommerakademie invites emerging artists and curators from around the world to Berne to attend a ten-day theme-specific workshop, and to network.

This year’s programme is curated by South African visual artist, writer and cultural worker Sue Williamson and boasts a rich presence of South African participants such as dancer Nelisiwe Xaba and visual artists Penny Siopis and Candice Breitz. Among the twelve fellow of the Sommarakademie, this year, is Lerato Shadi, who was a Pro Helvetia Artist in residence in Berne in 2010. More information: www.sommerakademie.zpk.org
