Arta Sperto is a curation, production, organization and publishing agency for artistic, mainly multi- and transdisciplinary projects, founded and directed by Olivier Kaeser. Without a fixed location, it imagines its projects in collaboration with cultural partners, or in public spaces, both urban and natural.
In 2020, Arta Sperto organized and produced the exhibition-festival Dance First Think Later – An Encounter between Dance and Visual Arts. A publication containing a rich iconography and 25 texts, in French and English, is in preparation. Entitled Dance First Think Later – The Thinking Body between Dance and Visual Arts, it is designed as an editorial for the exhibition, with a historical, critical and theoretical perspective. It should be published by the end of 2021, and will be distributed by Les presses du réel..
In September and October 2021, the subaquatic performance SpO2 by Anne Rochat and Jean Rochat is presented in the waters of Lake Geneva and in a river in Ticino. It is the first project of one of Arta Sperto’s axes of activity, “One Context, One Work”, which consists in offering an artist to design a work from a context that he / she chooses, and in which the work can be presented to the public. Anne Rochat responded by choosing to be immersed in a body of water.
For 2022, a second edition of Dance First Think Later is in preparation. It should be presented on two main sites, the Commun and the ADC Pavilion in Geneva, from September 16 to October 9, 2022.
