Interviews with young artists in Switzerland

Led by

Since 2007


Well-known Swiss artists who have been working for some years are usually well documented in publications such as monographs and exhibition catalogues. This is not the case for young artists who have garnered their first awards, received support from major institutions or built a reputation as promising new talent thanks to a number of exhibitions. There tends not to be much documentation available about them. The interview documentation project launched in 2007 questions young artists in German- and French-speaking Switzerland about their lives, their work and their artistic activities. There are plans to extend the series and to provide insights into the present-day art sector.
