More about the artists:
Johanna Schaible‘s work moves at the intersection of illustration, art and design. She was one of the first members of Bolo Klub, a collective supporting an emerging generation of picture-book makers in Switzerland. Her picture-book debut ‘Once upon a time there was and will be so much more’ was published in 2021 as a co-edition in ten languages.
Uriel Orlow’s practice is research-based, process-oriented and often in dialogue with other disciplines. Projects engage with residues of colonialism, spatial manifestations of memory, social and ecological justice, blind spots of representation and plants as political actors. His multi-media installations focus on specific locations, micro-histories and forms of haunting. Working across installation, photography, film, drawing and sound his works bring different image-regimes and narrative modes into correspondence.
Elia Buletti is a sound artist working in the field of experimental music. He produces and performs music as Delmore FX, an ongoing solo project he started in 2010. Elia is also active as a sound designer and as DJ Giorgio Gabber. In 2008, he founded the label Das Andere Selbst, a music label that releases limited editions on vinyl and tapes.
Vera Ryser is an independent curator and cultural practitioner. She engages with transdisciplinary projects between art, research and mediation. Her work deals with decolonial practices, feminist resistances and migrant discourses and she strives to update these topics beyond the supposedly clear boundaries of practice and theory. She cooperates with artists, researchers and everyday experts.
Residencies offer the artist an opportunity to research, experiment and engage. We hope that the recipients will gain from the opportunity and be able to form sustainable networks for the future.
