Authors in residence

Author’s residency: July – August

Since 2014 La Galerie has been offering a two-month summer residency to a writer, asking him or her to compose a “fiction/critique” that blends art criticism with literature. The writer will also play a special part in shaping the cultural programme based on the theme for the season.
The resultant texts will be published and over the years will form a bilingual series in French and English.


Selection is carried out by the La Galerie artistic direction team.
The author in residence for July-August is Delphine Chapuis Schmitz.
Born in 1979, Delphine Chapuis Schmitz took out a doctorate in philosophy in Paris, followed by a masters in fine arts from the Zurich University of the Arts in 2012. Her artistic practice focuses on text and language, whose aesthetic aspects she explores in installations and publications. Her work has been exhibited in Zurich, Basel, Bologna, Paris and elsewhere.
