Supporting Artists since 1972

Marianne Mueller

Landis & Gyr Stiftung Residency

Marianne Mueller is a Zurich-based artist, mostly working with objects, photography, video, and books. She collects observations of quotidian environments that she recontextualizes in her works, often in reaction to the specific site of an exhibition. Installation, camouflage and “anti monumentality” are central themes in her work.

Marianne is a professor at the Zurich University of the Arts. Her publications include A Part of My Life (1998), The Flock (2004), The Proper Ornaments (2008), Stairs Etc. (2014), and The Book of Complaints and Suggestions (2020).

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
