UNTERWEGS, or the thoughts of a lonesome traveller (2017)
UNTERWEGS is a recursive project that explores self portraiture and deterritorialization. In 2007, long before I understood what deterritorialization meant, I moved to Switzerland as a high school exchange student and created online videos about my personal experience living in a foreign country alone. For the next ten years — through university and art school — I kept returning to Switzerland in my mind and my art. In 2017, therefore, I published a book, titled UNTERWEGS, that tied together all of my own artistic preoccupations with Switzerland, while also exploring how travel is a muse for artists and academics around the world.
