INSTITUTE FOR LAND AND ENVIRONMENTAL ART
The institute is an international research center dedicated to Land and Environmental Art. It supports the practice, study and mediation of artistic interaction with nature, with particular focus on the Alpine landscape. Since 2016 the institute has been responsible for the conceptualization and organization of ART SAFIENTAL (Biennale for Land and Environmental Art) as well as the ALPS ART ACADEMY (Summer School for Land and Environmental Art). In 2019 it will start the publication series LANDSCAPE (Documents of Land and Environmental Art). The institute is supported by Naturpark Beverin and the municipality of Safiental. They are advised by an international board. At the end of 2019 the institute plans to establish a year-round operational base in permanent premises in Safiental in the Swiss Alps. This will include a showroom and library as well as an event and talk program and a research and artist residency.
