Nocturnal Exhibition at f’ar Lausanne

Scènes de Nuit presents five nocturnal encounters exploring the role of night in the construction of contemporary cities and societies. The exhibition seeks to reflect on the spaces, activities, and media in nighttime culture, using evening events and performative scenography as display platforms. The themed evenings—SHOP, FILM, CLUB, FOOD, and CITY—explore the nocturnal practices and rituals associated with different space types, such as corner shops, cinemas, nightclubs, restaurants, and artificially lit urban environments. They become experimental laboratories to examine the relationship between night and architecture.
