Located at Saint Louis in Alsace, in 2004 the former distillery of the famous bitter herb liqueur “Fernet Branca” became a leading contemporary art centre in the tri-national cultural network created around Basel in the heart of this symbolic triangle between France, Switzerland and Germany. Organized by the ADIAF on the invitation of its Director Pierre-Jean Sugier, the Fondation Fernet-Branca is hosting the first exhibition dedicated to the women artists honoured by the Marcel Duchamp Prize who have responded to the enthusiastic project imagined by the young curator Alicia Knock.
