The Program

Artist Residency

The Swatch Art Peace Hotel Artist Residency Program is designed to bring together artists from around the world to experience a unique cultural environment dedicated to contemporary art.

Selected artists are invited to live and work from 3 to 6 months in workshop studios on dedicated hotel floors, in a community of 18 people from all artistic horizons and national origins.

The focus of the Residency is on creative exchange. Artists are free to engage in individual or joint projects. All participants will be asked to leave an artistic “trace” at the end of their stay.

Apply now online! The application fee of 30.- CHF will be donated in its entirety to Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders).

Virtual Museum

Traces by resident artists can also be viewed online in the Virtual Museum. On completing their stay at the Swatch Art Peace Hotel, all resident artists are given the opportunity to have their “trace” published on this site and to present a small selection of their art as well as some general information about themselves and their work.

The Virtual Museum will grow in time as new artists are added.
