The “present” – without today, tomorrow there would be no yesterday
Looking to the “present”: Bad Ragartz 2024
The “present” remains in the future for now, as not until 4 May 2024 will Bad Ragartz be welcoming visitors from all over the world to the 9th Swiss Triennial of Sculpture. Until 30 October 2024, selected works of internationally renowned artists will make the “present” both visible and tangible in parks, gardens, streets and squares. Join us in looking forward to a unique art experience in the here and now.
What makes Bad Ragartz so extraordinary? It is the unifying approach of offering sculptors from all over the world a truly open platform for their three-dimensional works. We invite you to become part of the 9th Triennial of Sculpture with your own individual concept and artistic self-identity. Apply now with your selected works and shape the future of the “present” with us.
Art, like all else, takes place in the “present”. Yet one of the key pursuits in art is to think of the future, ask questions about the future and create the future. Based on this notion, we continuously develop Bad Ragartz and uncover new artistic possibilities with each triennial festival. A good example of this is the “Lab for Young Artists”, which provides space for new ideas. We always think outside the box, and through future-oriented formats we will ensure that Bad Ragartz is always “state-of-the-art”.
Art is a family affair
Bad Ragartz was established in 2000 by Esther and Rolf Hohmeister and has been a labour of love for the entire family ever since. With their passion for art, the two have been committed for many years to making art accessible to everyone, especially families with children. Additional events such as DorfART or LiteraTOUR now complement the Swiss Triennial of Sculpture outside the three-year exhibition cycle. The next two generations of the Hohmeister family are already passionate about Bad Ragartz and playing an active role in the future of the festival.
