Amilcar Packer (Santiago, Chile – 1974) is an artist, philosopher and curator based in São Paulo. His artistic practice revolves around the re-articulation of bodies, objects and architectural structures with the aim of inverting hegemonic discourses crystallised in the fields of language, spatial organisation and normative behavioural standards.

During his research trip to Switzerland, Packer visited residencies (La Becque, Utopiana), institutions (La Manufacture, Kunsthalle Bern), the CERN Scientific Research Centre, festivals (far° festival, Zürcher Theaterspektakel), and met with several professionals to introduce himself to the local production scene with the aim of developing collaborations with Swiss partners.
