Future Nomads (2013), web performance/photograph
Zurich, Switzerland


In Future Nomads twelve artists, including the artist herself, held letters that read "future nomads" in front of a live webcam. The webcam was installed on a crane, overlooking a developing area in Zurich (Europaallee) where the artistsí studios were located.

The performance lasted several minutes and was archived with a photograph using the webcam itself.

The work reflected on the process of gentrification and its consequences, and portrayed the increasingly nomadic existence of the contemporary artist.

The work was created during a residency with the Kunsthaus Aussersihl at the OG9, Zurich.
