supported by Città di Lugano and crowdfunding
In 2018, Lago Mio, the first artist residency in the old town of Lugano, Switzerland, was inaugurated with a sleep-over installation by conceptual artist Johannes Willi. The comprehensive «final presentation» featured the works created by the filmmaking guest artists in residence in the summer/fall of 2019: Chika Anadu, Zayne Armstrong, and Tobias Madison (resident in physical absence). All works created within the framework of Lago Mio in 2018/2019 are represented in the first Lago Mio edition. Video stills in the book can be set in motion via the Primo Print in motion app.
