ALTER- is a refuge for art and research anchored in Chandolin, a village perched at an altitude of 2000m. in the Val d'Anniviers, in the heart of the Swiss Alpine landscape with a high level of biodiversity.
This cultural association collaborates closely with local partners and offers to the inhabitants of the valley, to artists and other thinkers and creators a space for meeting with nature, time for research and a place for artistic, scientific and militant development.
Imagined by the curator-artists Julie Beauvais and Horace Lundd in collaboration with the facilitator Sarah Huber, ALTER- is co-created and co-elaborated by the actors of Chandolin and the Val d'Anniviers.
ALTER- crosses disciplines and continents, challenges artists, researchers and communities of the Val d'Anniviers to consider together alternative perspectives on the relationship with the natural world, the mountains and our planet. It is about exploring the unthinkable.
