Till Langschied is a German-born visual artist who lives in Basel, Switzerland, and 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 in 2019.
His artistic research focusses on the desires and dreams of humanity and on how these are projected onto an “other” - namely technology and nature. His work 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. Within his practice he developed the performance character Till Tumaroh, which he uses as an avatar on various levels within his work.
Tumaroh’s written manifesto was published by Éditions Extensibles, Paris, and performed as a lecture performance at the Librairie du Palais de Tokyo in Paris and the Dampfzentrale in Bern. Langschied’s work has been exhibited internationally, including shows at Haus der elektronischen Künste HEK (Münchenstein, 2019), Au Lieu (Paris, 2019), Kunstverein Freiburg (Freiburg, 2019), Binz 39 (Zurich, 2019) and Old Libarary of ASFA (Athens, 2018).
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.
Additionally to his own practice he organizes the artist run space Pleasure Zonein an erotic cinema in Basel and its online counterpart Virtual Pleasures.
