Initiated in March 2015 at the Schinkel Pavillon in Berlin, Alpina Huus is a research platform by Elise Lammer and Denis Pernet that considers performance and domestic space. During two festivals, a symposium and an exhibition, taking place in Geneva and Lausanne, Swiss and international artists thread and unthread—sometimes simultaneously — multiple narratives that further explore ideas around community practice, and an understanding of the domestic environment as a stage where meaningful artistic conversations can and do take place. Among an audience that never knows what is to be considered as staged or not, the difference between a spectacle and the typical course of an art gathering is blurred, pushing the limits of, and sometimes overlapping, private and public spheres. The Arsenic holds the Alpina Huus’ closing reception with a performance night.
