Founded in 2013, Sonnenstube is an artist-run space dedicated to contemporary art and music. Sonnenstube, which literally means "sunny room", is a term used in the German speaking area of Switzerland to describe the Canton Ticino. ☼ Wir sind das Schöne Wetter ☼
Sonnenstube is an off-space located in the southern part of Switzerland, in the italian speaking region. In 2019, we became itinerant, meaning we don’t have a determined exhibition space but we continue our program in a wide range of temporary venues. We also bought a caravan to use as a toolbox and living space on selected exhibitions.
At Supermarket Art Fair we are bringing our transformative and adaptive peculiarity with a project called “Hold Luggage Exhibition”. Our team brought a suitcase filled with small art pieces from different artists collected during an intensive studio visit tour. Artworks were selected for their artistic value but also following the size, weight and material limitations enforced by the suitcase and flight regulations.
