Benedikt Wyss is based in Basel, Switzerland. He pushes the boundaries of curation in his independent artistic practice. In order to investigate new forms of encounter, Wyss initiates happenings in ever-changing environments, including a river, a restaurant, a construction site, a house awaiting demolition, a luxury hotel, train tracks, etc.
Wyss is a curator at SALTS Birsfelden. He founded the Kunstverein ‚Deli Projects‘, the art race ‚Draisine Derby‘, the Swiss branch of the ‚Social Muscle Club‘, the film research project ‚Explorers Film Club‘, and ‚Lago Mio‘, an artist residency in Lugano, Switzerland. He recently developed the AR video app ‚Primo Print in Motion‘ to digitally extend printed art publications. Wyss collaborated with Art Basel Parcours, Artemis Fontana Paris, Espacio Odéon Bogotá, Belluard Festival Fribourg, fructa space München, Kunsthalle Basel, Kunstmuseum Basel, Museum Tinguely, SALTS Birsfelden, Schauspielhaus Zürich, Turba Lugano a.o.
