Intro

Is there a reason why these words use the same letters? Coincidence? A proverb says,‘To be a good listener you have to be silent first.’

Guided by this inspiring theme, we explore the many aspects and relationships of silence and listening. We experience the communication of nature in its many facets, discover places dedicated to silence and exchange and experience the poetry of silence as well as unusual musical performances.

The 2020 programme is curated by Daniel Baumann (Director Kunsthalle Zürich), Bice Curiger (Director Foundation Van Gogh Arles), Hans Ulrich Obrist (Artistic Director, Serpentine Galleries London) and Philip Unsprung (Dean of Architecture at ETH Zürich).
