High Culture in Valle Maggia, Ticino
Dr. Hanna Gagel
Aesthetics and Art Historian, Berlin, Zurich
Sculpture is not necessarily a part of today’s mainstream art production. Many ask themselves: What is the point of sculptural activities in today’s world? This question has been convincingly answered by, for example, Louise Bourgeois. To give sculpture a fresh stimulus, a new international centre for sculpture is waiting to be created in the Ticino where international exchange will be promoted. This is good news indeed. Dr. Hanna Gagel supports the Centro Internazionale di Scultura.

50% Canton Ticino
The Centro Internazionale di Scultura is taking shape: The funding of 5 million Swiss Francs from the canton Ticino has been designated as a 'Challenge Grant', meaning that the 'Fondazione Internazionale per la Scultura' will need to raise an equal amount from donors and sponsors to cover the estimated project costs of 10 million Swiss Francs. So far, 1.7 million Swiss Francs have been pledged by 6 Foundations, 81 Friends, 141 Brick Buyers and 38 Supporters. For the realisation of the project it is necessary to raise a further 3.3 million Swiss Francs by the end of December 2015.
