Till Langschied is a visual artist who works in a variety of media. Originally from Frankfurt a.M., he studied at the AMD Düsseldorf and under Chus Martinez at the Institut Kunst HGK in Basel where he graduated with a degree in Fine Arts. He currently lives and works in Basel, Switzerland.Langschied's artistic research focusses on the relation between humans and technology. On the one hand he is interested in how human bodies increasingly merge with technology, on the other hand he investigates the metaphysics of machines and how they can be seen as more than mere objects. For him, technology and machines are the frozen hopes and dreams of humankind.
Within these topics he explores the constantly evolving relationships between virtual and analogue spaces, operating at the boundaries of these realms. He develops many of his works in digital formats and then transforms them into physical objects and installations, in order to question the agency of the virtual.
Langschied's work has been exhibited internationally, including shows at 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 2020 he was invited for the Lago Mio residency in Lugano, Switzerland, and granted a residency stay in China by Pro Helvetia in 2021.
