The Cantonale is a collaboration between Kunstverein Biel and Kunsthaus Pasquart and shows this year 53 positions using the whole exhibition space. In media such as painting, drawing, video, sculpture, photography or installation, the regional artists question current themes and challenge our viewing habits. Showing art here means creating relationships and building bridges.
Works by the prizewinners of the Prix Kunstverein and the Prix Anderfuhren will also be presented at the Cantonale Berne Jura.
