Discover outstanding national and international avant-garde artists and digital culture at a group exhibition as well as with live music events and talks in St. Moritz.
In a year that will change the world, artists from different backgrounds and nationalities come to St. Moritz to examine questions about life in the future and how to co-exist under the theme of ?Re-Creation of Humanity?, and with good reason: social change will also have a crucial impact on tourism. That is why, as Adrian Ehrbar, Director of St. Moritz tourism explains, St. Moritz is breaking new ground: ?Our guests, in particular the younger generations, are looking for authentic experiences that are still in line with their current understanding of the media and do justice to sustainable tourism. With WINDOW OF THE WORLD, we are able to meet these demands by creating relevance through cultural modern entertainment and thus a current reference to global development and the digitalisation of society.?
First edition of 2020 starts in August
To launch this concept, 14 guest artists from twelve countries will have their work shown at the St. Moritz train station in shipping containers at the ?Digital Village? and the historic Reithalle. The best-known participants include Marc Lee, the pioneer of Swiss media art, and the disnovation.org project from Paris. Their work deals critically with digitisation, social media and fake news, along with globalisation and its impacts on society. The website window-of-the-world.com provides an overview of the program and the participating artists.
