International ceramics competition - Carouge 2024

Dernière mise à jour: 08.12.2023

Since 1987, the City of Carouge (Geneva) has been organising a biennial ceramics competition for the creation of works focusing on an imposed theme.

Festivities

This is the theme chosen by the City of Carouge, a city with a festive reputation, known historically for its inns, cabarets and openness in a formerly austere context.

Festivities are present in all human societies, at all latitudes, yesterday as today, to celebrate happy or unfortunate events. Characterised by excesses, moments of explosion and effervescence in contrast to an often monotonous daily routine, they set the pace for our lives.

Whether collective or private, high-society or popular, antique or contemporary, festivities offer a subject for the most diverse reflections and forms, through an analysis both of its accessories and its constituent rites.

The 19th edition of the International Ceramics Competition also marks the 40th anniversary of the Museum of Carouge, which will host the exhibition of the artists selected.

The jury awards the following prizes in the present competition:

  • the City of Carouge Prize, in the amount of CHF10’000.-;
  • the Bruckner Foundation Prize for the promotion of ceramics, in the amount of CHF 2’000.-;
  • the prize offered by swissceramics - Swiss Ceramics Association, in the amount of CHF 1’000.-.
