Yves Mettler

Yves Mettler realizes interventions in the public space and sound installations that present a narrative fabric giving the making of the urban environment a polyphonic, and often humorous, expression. Since 2003 he has developed a research & art practice around urban places called “Europe Square”, cultivating the spaces between urban reality and symbolic values. His works have been shown at Bozar (2016), Museum for contemporary art, Gallarate (2015), Kunsthaus Langenthal (2012), Bawag Contemporary Vienna (2009), Georg Kargl Box (2008). He holds MFAs from the Vienna Art Academy and the Geneva Art School and an MA in Art Theory and Language, EHESS, Paris. In 2010 he participated in Bruno Latour’s Art and Politics pilot project, Sciences-Po, Paris. He is co-editor of the Vienna based art fanzine Chicago, Helvetica, Plotter, etc… (ztscrpt.net)
