The Alps Art Academy is an international summer academy in the Swiss Alps dedicated to the theme of land and environmental art. The Academy takes place every two years in Tenna, in Safiental (GR), with a changing thematic focus. The Alps Art Academy invites artists, theoreticians, mediators, and curators to discuss and work on the concept of land and environmental art and its contemporary and local aspects. The results of the 10-day program will be presented in the context of the Land Art Biennale Art Safiental, which is affiliated to the Academy. An integral part of the Academy is a public, two-day symposium. The bilingual publication series Documents of Land and Environmental Art develops the themes of the Alps Art Academy and discusses them in a broader, international context.
The academy is organized by the Institute for Land and Environmental Art (ILEA) and takes place every two years at the Berghotel Alpenblick, 1650 meters above sea level in Tenna, Safiental (GR).
