Pro Helvetia, for the culturally aware.

As much as it sounds like this foundation might have savagely amputated their left wing and proudly used the blood gushing from the open wound to paint another swiss flag atop their mansion of pride and patriotism....

Passages is a heavily intellectual mag published by the Swiss Arts Council by the name of Pro Helvetia. A breakdown on Swiss 'happening' culture and contemporary issues in english, it covers politics, art, music, the underground, contemporary issues and all kinds of interesting topics for the culturally-engaged expat. Which for me, is super great.

It covers in good form many of the topics discussed here in relation to 'foreigner vs SWITZERLAND',.
interviews with artists, authors, and musicians ensue with many other key issues concerning Switzerland, its people, identity and international relations.

For those that enjoy something a little more substantial than opening to yet another reactionary Blick article, perhaps you might enjoy this.

You can subscribe to the printed edition free if you live abroad, or simply download it (PDF) from their website. It comes in Deutsch, Français and English versions.
www.prohelvetia.ch

Happy Reading.

Best.
Lars

Re: Pro Helvetia, for the culturally aware.

Thanks, Kapsule, for this enlightening contribution. Since I found it somewhat difficult to find the mentionned document, I post the direct link to the English version here. Consider that it will take some time to open since it's a .pdf file.
