Claudio Moser

Landis & Gyr Stiftung Residency

Claudio Moser is a Swiss artist who works primarily in lens-based media. Claudio’s practice captures an exploration of the world through walking and looking, his camera alighting on places where action may occur, or where the memory of an act is still visible.

Claudio studied film at the École Supérieure d’Art Visuel in Geneva with François Albera and Francis Reusser. In 1987 he received a fellowship at the Swiss Institute in Rome. From 1988 to 2004 he lived in Basel and participated in several artist residencies abroad: at the Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris (1993–94), PS1 in New York (1995–96), London with the support of Landis & Gyr (2001), Gushul Studio in Blairmore, Canada (2003), and Berlin with the support of the Aargauer Kuratorium (2006-7).

Recent solo exhibitions include: La notte (coperte di lana su divano), Villa Garbald, Castasegna (2019); Ich dachte, hier ist niemand, Kloster Sankt Georgen, Stein am Rhein (2019); entlang liinlü, Nicolas Krupp, Basel (2018); I come from the other side, Musée de Bagnes, Le Châble, and Barrage de Mauvoisin, Val de Bagnes (2017); Land vermessen, Galerie Anke Schmidt, Cologne (2016); and noon at night, Skopia art contemporain, Genève (2015).

Landis & Gyr Stiftung, Switzerland

The Landis & Gyr foundation awards studio scholarships to Swiss artists and cultural professionals in London, Budapest, Sofia and Zug. Its London-based residency partnership with Acme was established in 1987, and provides six month long work/live opportunities for ten Swiss artists per year. Artists are selected for the programme directly by Landis & Gyr Stiftung and must demonstrate a track record of achievement in their field. Over two hundred visual artists, curators, writers, musicians and composers have benefitted from the programme. Residencies are based in Stepney, E1 and are available to Swiss residents only
