Les Rencontres d'Arles 2019
July 1st to September 22nd, 2019
For five years, Switzerland has had a presence in the heart of the Rencontres, which celebrate their 50th anniversary this year!
Both anniversaries show that love lasts when the programme avoids routine.
This unique partnership allows us to exchange ideas and showcase our country through images. A country which is as diverse as the cultures that comprise it. Switzerland proudly expresses itself at Arles with its artists, institutions, schools, festivals, publishers—and the nonante-neuf!
Yes, the nonante-neuf, a welcoming venue of must see events where people discuss Switzerland and photography. This year, Croisière will host Swiss photography with the help from the canton and City of Geneva.
The Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia offers a series of discussions at nonante-neuf Talks, a friendly place in the heart of Temple Arles Books where people swap ideas and share.
The festival’s 50th anniversary programme offers once again an in-depth look at Swiss photography, including Mario del Curto and his reflections on manmade gardens; Leo Fabrizio and Daphné Bengoa’s project featuring architect Fernand Pouillon’s work in Algeria; and, especially, Eldorado by Geneva’s Christian Lutz, an observation of two cities where anything goes, Las Vegas and Macao.
