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 emerging Swiss artists the publication of their first monograph and provides arts specialists and interested audiences with a window to current trends in the Swiss arts scene. Every two years and based on the recommendation of a jury, Pro Helvetia selects eight artists who applied in response to a public call for applications. The ensuing publication is the result of close collaboration between the artist concerned, the author, the graphic designers, the publishers and Pro Helvetia. Through its national and international networks and its direct contacts with institutions, Pro Helvetia distributes the Cahiers d’Artistes to curators and critics around the world. It also fosters debate on the topics of the publication at various public events. The Swiss Arts Council launched the Collection Cahiers d’Artistes in 1984. Taken as a whole, the series offers an extensive view of Swiss arts production over the past 35 years. This online platform makes all the monographs available in digitised form.
