Lago Mio: Lugano residency, 2020

/// NEW WEBSITE: ///

We were thrilled by the numerous applications for the 2020 late summer residency in August/September, including an exhibition opening on 23 October 2020. It has been a real struggle to make our final selection, and we are all the more delighted with the well-considered choice made by our jury: Johanna Bruckner from Vienna/Austria, based in Zurich/Switzerland, moves to Lago Mio after her residence at the Istituto Svizzero in Rome/Italy. Till Langschied, born in Frankfurt/Germany, travels from Basel/Switzerland. Diana Lelonek from Warsaw/Poland, is our non-physical guest – she is currently stuck in her apartment in Warsaw because of the coronavirus.

Past Lago Mio editions:
Chika Anadu, Zayne Armstrong, Tobias Madison summer/fall 2019
Johannes Willi winter/spring 2018/19

More residency projects curated by Benedikt Wyss:
Explorers Film Club 2020/21
