From 24 to 26 October, the annual conference of CIPRA (International commission for the protection of the Alps), named this year “Cultural Laboratory Alps”, will take place in Altdorf, Uri. The theme of the culture will be questioned through what forces are being unleashed in the Alps, how they work and what framework conditions are needed so that cultural initiatives can make a contribution to sustainable development.
Taking advantage of this international event, a “flash exhibition” of Juan Pablo Marin’s work is organised during the conference. This year, the Colombian photographer was in residence for 3 month in Goeschenen, Uri, and focused his work on what he called “the fruit of the mountains”: the crystals. His artwork presents landscapes and portraits of crystalseekers viewed through the prism of a crystal.
