Till Langschied is a visual artist, curator and GIF-enthusiast who works in a variety of media. He studied at the AMD Düsseldorf, at the Institut Kunst HGK in Basel and the Roaming Academy of the Dutch Art Institute. He currently lives and works in Basel, Switzerland.
Langschied’s artistic practice focuses on how our mostly digitalized reality leaves traces on human bodies and minds. He asks himself how our psyche can handle the oversaturated moment of a constantly expanding “now”? He has been working with the relation between humans and the technology they invent, build and use for some time. In all these different works he has always been focussing on the emotional echos vibrating off manifestations of tech-society.
Langschied’s work has been exhibited internationally, including shows at Museum Tinguely (Basel, 2022) Centre Culturel Suisse (Paris, 2021), Ausstellungsraum Klingental (Basel, 2021), Zabriskie Point (Geneva, 2021), Kunstraum Niederösterreich (Vienna, 2020), Haus der elektronischen Künste HEK (Münchenstein, 2019), Kunstverein Freiburg (Freiburg, 2019) and Binz 39 (Zurich, 2019).
In 2019, Langschied founded the independent art space Pleasure Zone. Since 2021 he curates the satellite program of the DOCK archive and art space in Basel. He is part of the Summe collective that represents Basel’s offspace culture.
He was invited to Lago Mio residency in Lugano in 2020 and was granted a residency stay in China by Pro Helvetia in 2021.
