Full Description

Swiss artist Nesa Gschwend, born 1959 in St. Gallen, merges traditional crafts, such as embroidery, knitting, and sewing, with avant-garde and performative artistic techniques. Widely recognised as one of Switzerland’s most distinguished contemporary artists, her art also combines craft with philosophy. Her textile works, material collages, videos, installations, and participatory performances transform individual lived stories into tangible metaphors for collective memory, for human existence itself.

This new book features recent work by Nesa Gschwend. The essays explore her approach and describe her humanistic aspiration to transform existential questions into aesthetic reflection.

Text in English and German.
