What now ?
We want to be ready for this occasion with an alternative list, one that thinks seriously about what allows Switzerland to function as a society, for better or for worse, with all of its blemishes and its crimes. We want modernity, bureaucracy, industry and urban life to be parts of this picture, alongside harmless pagan rituals, the batting of odd bits of metal, and, of course, yodeling.
Thus, we are hereby launching a call for ingenious, imaginative, fresh and fine items of Intangible Satirical Heritage to figure on our Alter-Inventory. All suggestions should be addressed to the wonderful team of ISH specialists featured on our “Who ?” page.
