Dogo Residenz, 2019 –
Dogo Residenz is dedicated to artistic development, mediation and production of contemporary art. The residency was founded in 2019 and is located at the Rathaus für Kultur in Lichtensteig, St. Gallen. Dogo is organised as an art association and offers artists the opportunity to develop professionally during their stays. Artistic processes, as well as the resulting works are documented in the public online archive. Dogo organises different mediation formats such as events, open studios or discussions. A further component of Dogo is art mediation, which includes a workshops and projects with schools. The year is always rounded off with Dogo Totale, the annual exhibition in November. Dogo was initiated by Hanes Sturzenegger, Julia Wäckerlin, Marcel Hörler, Maura Kressig and Sirkka Ammann.
