Swiss architect Philippe Rahm is taking part of Sharjah Biennial 14 with a talk on March 9,  during the March Meeting 2019: Look for Me All Around You,  curated by Claire Tancons. Rahm will be also contributing with an architecture study to one of the catalogues of the biennial. Swiss curators, Madeleine Amsler and Balthazar Adrien Alexandre Lovay, along with journalist and writer Susanna Alexandra Petrin will be on a research trip to the Biennale from March 6 to 11, 2019.  If you are in Sharjah, you can meet our team, Dalia Suleiman, Head of Pro Helvetia Cairo, and Patrick Gosatti, from the Visual Arts Department in Zurich, who will also be there.

Philippe Rahm will intervene within the framework of Look for Me All Around You, the curatorial platform of Claire Tancons for Sharjah Biennial 14: Leaving the Echo Chamber and this in two titles. He will first present his work during the March Meeting 2019 during the opening week of the biennale (7-11 March). He will then contribute to the catalog of Look for Me All Around You a project of meteorological architectural study answering the themes of the curatorial platform – cosmo-ecologic, techno-sensory and museo-imaginal – inserted in the context of Sharjah, The Emirates and the Gulf, at a time when the region is one of the spearheads of the construction of a new type of museum said universal (Abu Dhabi) or global (Qatar).

Such an intervention is commissioned for one of the three catalogs of Sharjah Biennial 14.
