Saas-Fee Summer Institute of Art (SFSIA) is a nomadic, intensive summer academy with shifting programs in contemporary critical theory. SFSIA stresses an interdisciplinary approach to understanding the relationship between art and politics. The program consists of seminar-style lectures, deep readings, and workshops. An evening lecture program is free and open to the public. We encourage all genre of artists, film-makers, poets, philosophers, architects, critical theorists, and curators whose practice could use an invigorating jolt of new theory to consider applying for the program.
SFSIA originated in Saas-Fee, Switzerland in 2015 and migrated to Berlin, Germany in 2016 where it is currently hosted by Spike. In 2019, an additional program will be hosted by Performance Space New York.
