Aargauer Kuratorium Residency

Jan Hofer is a Swiss artist working in sculpture, performance and video, often seeking collaborations with people from outside of the art world. He studied Visual Communication at Zurich University of the Arts (2009-13) and was a visiting student at the Stuttgart State Academy of Art and Design (2015-16).

During his 2018 residency in London, Jan realized Groundwork – a 23 minute video that challenged borders and boundaries.

Aargauer Kuratorium, Switzerland

Aargauer Kuratorium has worked in partnership with Acme to develop and provide a London-based artists' residency since 1999. Based in Bow, E3, the residency enables a wide spectrum of practitioners connected with the Canton of Aargau, Switzerland, to undertake two six month long work/live residencies per year. Artist application and selection are conducted directly by Aargauer Kuratorium.
