In the summer of 2021, Miriam Cahn’s project FOREIGN the foreignness in the southern valley of Bergell in the Swiss canton of Grisons provoked a lasting echo both in the public and the media. The renowned contemporary artist, who has lived in the valley for years, set new, unexpected accentuations with her most recent work in the historic Palazzo Castelmur. As part of a multi-layered performance, this publication embraces the theme of being a stranger and advances a deepening of the discourse surrounding her work. The book, designed by Paris-based graphic designer Achim Reichert, reflects the conceptual openness of Miriam Cahn’s artistically as well as socially arousing project. Captured by internationally acclaimed photographer Lukas Wassmann, the works are presented in their unique spatial constellation arranged by the artist herself.

This book is also available in German.
