ART IN PUBLIC SPACES
A wide variety of art projects and events in public spaces can be found in the immediate vicinity of the Castell, as well as exciting art galleries featuring temporary exhibitions.
Art Public Plaiv is a project of contemporary art in public spaces in the La Plaiv region. Here in the Upper Engadine, in the landscape and settlement areas of the municipalities of La Punt Chamues-ch, Madulain, Zuoz and S-chanf, the intensive tourism meets with traditional cultural practices. The works of art that have been created in the context of Art Public Plaiv focus on the cultural and economic demands that characterise public life.
Between regional life and global networking, self-image and touristic cliché, these exhibits open up a field of modern thinking and behaviour. It is a research project of the "Fine Arts" study programme of the School of Art and Design Zurich in collaboration with the Institute of Art History of the University of Zurich, the WOP (Wirtschaftsorganisation Plaiv, the four municipalities in the region), and the Walter A. Bechtler Foundation for art in public spaces. Through Ruedi Bechtler, the project is closely linked to the Castell. It aims to promote cultural tourism in the region.
