In 2020, online formats became the main way of interaction between Swiss artists and their Russian colleagues. During the whole year, Swiss theatre directors, choreographers, curators, and artists took part in discussions of the current issues of the contemporary art, hosted workshops, played music and composed new pieces, as well as practiced performances at the online platforms of their Russian partners.
We are happy to share the selection of the most interesting online discussions, publications, and music recordings of this year.
