‘Fermada sün dumonda’ (‘Stop on request’) are the words that welcome those arriving in Susch. The medieval monastery situated there, which once offered a warm sojourn and respite to pilgrims on their journeys, is now home to MUZEUM SUSCH and Art Stations Foundation CH.
In 2020, the Chasa (a house) in the historical complex will once again become a home for travellers participating in the new residency programme, TEMPORARS SUSCH. In reference to the cultural, scientific and scholarly heritage of Friedrich Nietzsche, Thomas Mann, Vaslav Nijinsky, and J.M. Basquiat who, amongst others, discovered the Engadin as a site of inspiration and intellectual debate, the programme is aimed at those who are prepared to make a conscious decision to ‘Fermada sün dumonda’ (‘Stop on request’) and engage in intellectual activities and research.
TEMPORARS SUSCH provides artists of all disciplines, as well as writers, curators, cultural producers and researchers, from diverse backgrounds and career stages, with individual residencies. By offering the opportunity to unplug from routines of the everyday, the programme encourages its participants to explore and engage in producing ideas, dialogue and cultural debates.
Residents of Temporars Susch will be provided with:
- Accommodation in a single room with access to shared kitchen and common spaces, including WIFI.
- Travel expenses to and from Susch.
- Maintenance stipend of 350 CHF (~325 EUR) per week.
Residencies last 2-4 weeks, and the current open call is for the period August – November 2020
