Head to head I – Charlotte Laubard

Laubard, Charlotte (HEAD - Genève, Haute école d'art et de design, HES-SO // Haute école spécialisée de Suisse occidentale) ; Menétrey, Sylvain (HEAD - Genève, Haute école d'art et de design, HES-SO // Haute école spécialisée de Suisse occidentale)

On the run up to the Venice Biennale 2019, Sylvain Menétrey sat down with Charlotte Laubard, the curator of the Biennale’s Swiss Pavillon and the head of the HEAD’s Visual Arts’ department. The interview evokes the political dimension of Laubard’s choice of a duo of female artists, Pauline Boudry and Renate Lorenz, to represent Switzerland. It also tackles other commitments from Laubard, notably within the framework of the Nouveaux Commanditaires project, which supports citizens commissioning a public artwork. Laubard defends her vision of art as collective creation rather than the expression of an individual genius, and as social factor rather than autoreferential practice.
