About ch-arts:

ch-arts is a Swiss platform dedicated to contemporary arts and the distribution of related information.

Centralisation and multi-disciplinarity
Designed as a cultural exchange and referral vehicle, the ch-arts site has the mission to centralise and reference various types of resources connected with the visual arts, performing arts, design, graphic arts and architecture.

Trilingual presentation and communication
ch-arts provides overviews of the current state of the contemporary arts in Switzerland, by means of several supplementary sections.
ch-arts introduces artists who are active and recognised on the contemporary Swiss scene, and in parallel provides cultural institutions with a dynamic, trilingual (French, German and English) communication structure to inform various audiences about their activities.

Evolutionary nature of the site
The content presented on ch-arts is a collection of information which is continuously expanding to follow the evolution of their respective domains. The flexible structure of the site makes it possible, at any time, to accommodate new developments in order to complete and enhance this information.

Selectivity and coherence
ch-arts does not claim to provide a complete panorama of all artistic output, but is rather a discerning and coherent set of information. Therefore, the content is chosen according to the criteria selected by the editors and the Steering Committee.

The selection of articles is governed by three criteria:

ch-arts presents artists and institutions established in Switzerland, or international institutions featuring Swiss artists.
The artists and works presented on ch-arts are contemporary - the site is mainly concerned with creation from the eighties to the present day.
The artists and institutions mentioned on ch-arts are active in at least one of the domains involved (visual arts, performing arts, design, graphic arts, architecture) and demonstrate a contemporary approach in their own disciplines. They have achieved recognition at regional, national or international level via bona fide channels.
