Sonnenstube — Offspace

Sonnenstube, founded in 2013, is a collective and off space in Lugano dedicated to contemporary art and sometimes music. We occasionally present fanzines, limited editions, art magazines and self-published publications in our bookshop. Our mission is to establish a presentation venue for the emerging art scene in central and southern Ticino. Sonnenstube is directed today by: Giacomo Galletti (1993, curator and printer), Giada Olivotto (1990, curator), Sandro Pianetti (1987, artist and interaction designer) Gabriel Stöckli (1991, artist) and Gianmaria Zanda (1985, artist and musician).
