Benedikt Wyss (*1984, cv/portfolio) is based in Basel and Lugano, Switzerland. He pushes the boundaries of curation in his independent artistic practice. In order to investigate new forms of encounter with a diverse audience, Wyss initiates happenings in unexpected and ever-changing environments, such as a river, a restaurant, a club, a construction site, a house awaiting demolition, a luxury hotel, train tracks, etc. Since the beginning of 2020, Wyss is curating SALTS Birsfelden/Bennwil alongside Samuel Leuenberger, with whom he is associated with several joint projects. Wyss founded the Kunstverein Deli Projects, the art race Draisine Derby, the Swiss branch of the Social Muscle Club, the Explorers Film Club for artistic research on urban metamorphosis, 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, and Kokon, hybrid conferences on co-creation in the arts. Benedikt Wyss collaborated with Espacio Odéon Bogotá, Belluard Festival Fribourg, Festspiele Zürich, fructa München, Kunsthalle Basel, Museum Tinguely, Schauspielhaus Zürich, Südpol Luzern a.o.
