Venice biennials count among the most important platforms worldwide for contemporary art and architecture. Switzerland has been represented at the Venice Art Biennale since 1920 and the Architecture Biennale since 1991. As of 2012, Pro Helvetia is responsible for the Swiss contributions at the Biennale.
