The Exhibition that finally took place
The exhibition presented by the Electron festival this year offers a collection of perspectives on a year of the health crisis in the cultural milieu in Switzerland. Curator by Marie-Avril Berthet, geographer and fan of Dance Floor.
Initially, five photographers – Mehdi Benkler, Rebecca Bowring, Anna-Tia Buss, Esther Fayant, and Laurent Guiraud – were to document the reopening of the clubs in the summer of 2020.
But capturing the euphoria of a return to sociability in music after confinement collided with the reality of health measures.
“This exhibition is not an exhaustive representation of the cultural environment in Switzerland. While the starting point was the reopening of nightclubs, the photographers expanded their explorations due to the health restrictions. The strength of these photographs is to present places that have been hidden from us since their closure and whose invisibility grows as time goes by. These images also show cultural actors in their environments in where the crisis has pushed them, from the most private room to a public space, to oversized nightclubs and bars that are way too quiet. Alone and while thinking.” Marie-Avril Berthet.
