Centre d’Art

Due to the corona virus outbreak, the “physical” exhibition spaces of the Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève are temporarily closed to the public. We express our solidarity with sick people, health workers, and all those who are still heading to their workplaces every day.

While we wait out this public health crisis, the Centre’s activity has shifted entirely to our digital platform, the 5th floor. The four floors of our physical location may be closed, but this virtual space is guaranteed to be safe!

We warmly welcome you to stop by the 5th floor to enjoy music, new commissions, exclusive works, artists’ interviews, and poetry readings! In these times of turmoil, we continue to create opportunities to support artists. Here we offer those artists a platform for their digital work (with new commissioned material to follow soon)—and a place, enriched each Thursday, for our public to find inspiration.

The 5th floor
The 5th floor brings together a digital production space, a radio station, and a tool for disseminating artists’ voices and ideas.

On the Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève website, it serves as a window, a virtual space that extends and completes the programming hosted on the Centre’s physical floors. We see it as a tool for artistic experimentation, a continuously renewed laboratory for sound and vision.

Video: Xavier Oberson - taxing robots

Now online! Xavier Oberson on the taxation of robots
The increasing use of artificial intelligence within the workplace is likely to cause significant disruption to the labor market and, in turn, to the economy. This is due to a reduction in the number of workers and with it, taxes. In this short video, Xavier Oberson presents his book Taxing Robots (Cheltenham Gloss: Edward Elgar Publishing, 2019), the first publication to ever explore the taxation of robots as a possible solution to the anticipated shortfall in tax revenues.
