Launched in 2018, the 5th Floorthe virtual space of the Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève—is continuing its curatorial program in collaboration with worldwide artists, curators, philosophers, scholars, writers and more. As a true polyphonic project, this online platform brings together a production space, a radio station, and a tool for disseminating artists’ voices and ideas.

A new podcast project by Federico Campagna now online!
The Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève is presenting Overmorrow’s Library, a podcast series by Federico Campagna. The library for “the day after tomorrow” is dedicated to books and authors whose work explores the limits of the “world” as the frame of sense through which our consciousness experiences the chaos of reality. Each new episode presents a book that engages with the challenge of world-making, with the end-time of a world, or with the eternal unworldly. Spanning mysticism, politics, mythology, philosophy, video-game design and more, the shelves of Overmorrow’s Library are a space for experimenting with the apocalypse, and with the ignition of new cosmogonies.

The first three episodes of Overmorrow’s Library, about and in conversation with Franco Berardi Bifo, are now available on the 5th Floor. A new episode will be released each Thursday.

Upcoming projects
In the coming weeks, the Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève will present two curatorial projects by Ivana Momčilović and El Hadji Malick Ndiaye on the Works section of the 5th Floor.

The first project, published in three parts, is a selection of short, experimental, amateur films from Yugoslavia and the post-Yugoslav period of the former country. The dramaturge Ivana Momčilović has carefully selected new works forming the second part of her proposal, to be released on November 26. In December, a selection of video art from Africa and the diaspora curated by El Hadji Malick Ndiaye will be presented.

Every month, Guillaume Sorge enriches the 5th Floor Radio, taking you on an aleatory musical journey that includes rarities, soundscapes, installation soundtracks, avant-garde pop, and (unfairly) unknown classics. This one-of-a-kind musical flux also presents a new carte blanche each month—a special contribution by musicians and personalities, such as John Cravache, Bryce Hackford, R. Stevie Moore, Myako and Acid Washed.

The latest carte blanche is a lecture by Virginie Despentes held at the Centre Pompidou (October, 2020), on the occasion of Paul B. Preciado’s seminar.
