la_cápsula is an independent and experimental curatorial project that seeks to create a dialogue between the artistic and cultural production of Latin America and Swiss/local artists.
The project was initiated by Adriana Domínguez and Elena Rosauro in June 2017. For one and a half years it was a pop - up project which collaborated with different art spaces in Zürich, until it opened its own exhibition room in December 2018 (Stauffacherstrasse 119, 8004 Zürich).
The program of la_cápsula includes exhibitions and one day events such as talks, performances, project presentations and concerts. By promoting a dialogue between artists and cultural producers from Switzerland and Latin America, la_cápsula has opened a space in Zürich in which topics that affect both geographic territories, such as environmental issues, feminism, geopolitics, gender issues and decolonialism, are addressed in a wider sense and discussed within the context of Switzerland and its local population. la_cápsula seeks to present critical and interesting art made by emerging artists, and uses critical thinking and humor as strategies for the curatorial process.
la_cápsula is located in Stauffacherstrasse 119, 8004 Zürich. Regular opening hours are Fridays 5 - 9pm and also by appointment:
