Latifa Echakhch participating at Verbier Art Summit 2019, Verbier, Switzerland
Organised in partnership with the museum director Jochen Volz — Pinacoteca de São Paulo, Brazil — the 2019 Verbier Art Summit
took place on 1–2 February 2019 in Verbier, Switzerland around the theme: We are many. Art, the political and multiple truths.
In times of increasing uncertainty, we are in need of a deeper understanding of the multiplicity of narratives around us. Art has the potential to give voice to forgotten and silenced narratives, but also to envision entirely new possibilities. By bringing together artists, museum directors, activists and academics, the Verbier Art Summit engaged the art world in critical reflection on their social and political responsibilities. Together, we explored the political power of art.
The 2019 Summit Edition speakers included artists Tania Bruguera, Latifa Echakhch, Rirkrit Tiravanija and others.
