Collection Cahiers d'Artistes is a project of the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia for promoting the Visual Arts

Collection Cahiers d’Artistes

With its Collection Cahiers d’Artistes, the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia enables aspiring Swiss artists the publication of an initial monograph to their name. Once every two years, based on the recommendation of a jury, the Swiss Arts Council selects eight artists out of those who have followed a call for applications. The monographs are designed by Bonbon, Zurich in close cooperation with the artists themselves. For the artists, this represents a unique opportunity to make their work – underscored with a text of a renowned Swiss or international critic – better known to the international art scene. In addition, the Collection Cahiers d’Artistes enables Pro Helvetia to publicise trends in the contemporary Swiss arts scene both at home and abroad. The Cahiers d’Artistes series was launched by the Arts Council in 1984 and has been published by Edizioni Periferia since 2006. This online platform makes all the monographs published over the past 30 years available in digitised form.
