Syncretic Sites deals with past, forgotten, repressed or future events and existences. Just like any other place, Shedhalle is inhabited by traces from other times and spaces.
Fleeting bodies, hunches and vague allusions take center stage. Ghosts, memories, visions, dreams, traumas and all that would remain unheard and unheard-of, if we did not decide to listen.
HI-Intensity Phase: 15.-17.09.

Protozone 11: it’s weird
With: Angela Goh, Autumn Knight, Kris Lemsalu, Pontus Pettersson, Michael Portnoy
We are reclaiming the weird.
Not the uncanny, or necessarily the strange, but the weird as that which is out of place, a refusal in plain sight, a blurring of boundaries and relations. By challenging dominant perspectives, which have historically framed what is the “correct” narrative, weirdness becomes a space of knowledge production.
We invite a selection of artists and thinkers to imagine together how weirdness can create alternative and inclusive futures.
17.06. – 6.08.
open every Sat 14-20h & Sun 14-18h

with Selma Selman, Mikołaj Sobczak und Nicholas Grafia
Shedhalle brings together three artists for their first major institutional collaboration in Switzerland. Selma Selman, Mikołaj Sobczak, and Nicholas Grafia, friends who come from very different backgrounds, will spend a two-week-residency-period at Shedhalle. Together they will develop a spatial installation with their drawings, paintings, sculptural and video works.
And they will work on a new performance that will be presented on 16th and 17th of December, exploring the possibilities of experimental and political theatre. With references to absurdist performance and humorous play, they focus on social reality. They draw on narratives that are derived from socially stigmatized individuals and their bodily histories, but also their resilience and resistance.

QUEER TRUST is an attitude that draws from and relies on the in-between. It has shaped the work at Shedhalle as a space for process-based art since 2020 and is also the basis of Protozone8. The exhibition shows artistic works and ways of working that trust in relationships and processes beyond fixed attributions. The participating artists share intimate, vulnerable, open, and courageous artwork. In doing so, they question (gender) identities as well as artistic, scientific, and social traditions and classifications.
