Theres Lüthi

Landis & Gyr Stiftung Residency

Theres Lüthi is a medical journalist based in Zurich, Switzerland. She was a science editor at Neue Zürcher Zeitung and NZZ am Sonntag for 25 years and has written extensively on topics such as Alzheimer’s, Covid, cancer and psychiatry. She is interested in the intersection between health, illness and society: the ways we talk about disease, how patients experience illness and how social and cultural factors lead to health inequalities.

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
