Sitterwerk Foundation

The Sitterwerk Foundation with its Art Library, its Material Archive and the Studio House is located on the industrial site in the Sitter Valley near St.Gallen, in direct proximity to the Kesselhaus Josephsohn, to the Art Foundry and the Fotolabor. In this network, production, research, preservation, and the mediation of art and craft interpenetrate and enrich one another in diverse ways.
How does Japan wax feel? From which quarry does the marble from which Giambologna created his sculptures come from? What is the future of automated production processes? The collections of the Sitterwerk Foundation interlink such topics and many others and provide material, literature, and a space for precise research or inspiring browsing. The Sitterwerk Foundation shares what is developed here with a broad audience by means of a wide selection of activities, lectures, and tours.

“My ABC is …”
A series of workshops at the Kunstbibliothek and the Werkstoffarchiv

Putting a book in the wrong place in a library is sabotage, since it then becomes practically impossible for other people to find. The ABCs with their strict order leave very little room to maneuver. The dynamic order of the Kunstbibliothek, however, makes it possible to interpret the ABCs more freely and to define them anew again and again. The aim of the three-part series of workshops called “My ABC is . . .,” is to take advantage of this freedom and make the Kunstbibliothek and Werkstoffarchiv a marketplace for various points of view and notions of order for a specific period of time.
