Hannes Schüpbach

Get to know SqW:Lab 2024 fellow – today we speak to artist Hannes Schüpbach

Where can you be found?


Tell us about a creative action you have taken this week.

I read poetry by Joël-Claude Meffre and Werner von Mutzenbecher for an audience at 26. Internationale Kurzfilmtage Winterthur, playing words and images into their minds.

What does ‘home’ mean to you? 

All that is memory and the views out of my window. The large forest near the house where I live. The voices of people I know.

What was the last thing you cooked?

Risotto allo Zafferano; string beans; fish (Coregonus wartmanni) from Lake Constanz.

Tell us about 2 of your most subtle influences.

Morton Feldman; Modern Dance; sunlight.

Please share your thoughts / a few words about your expectations of the project.

The keyword that brought me to accept an invitation to SqW:Lab is “play”. Knowing that arriving in a place I have never been to means a sudden immersion into a wealth of sensations and subsequent inner resonance, I expect to listen and to be impressed by what is there. From there, some forms may emerge.
