The Forum is conceived by Hans Ulrich Obrist (Artistic Director of the Serpentine Galleries in London), Daniel Baumann (Director of the Kunsthalle Zürich), Bice Curiger (Artistic Director of the Fondation Vincent Van Gogh Arles) and Philip Ursprung (Dean of Architecture at ETH Zurich) together with Cristina Bechtler, founder of E.A.T..

Over the past 12 years, more than 250 speakers have presented their ideas and visions in relation to a challenging, annually changing, and socially relevant subject. The events organised by E.A.T. inspire and surprise an interested public.
