Doris Stauffer

Research project on feminist artist and activist Doris Stauffer, culminating in an exhibition and monograph. In close collaboration with the artist, Simone Koller and Mara Züst compiled the first monograph on this important pioneer of experimental art education in Switzerland.

The research project originated through a workshop at Bibliothek Andreas Züst, in which Doris Stauffer spoke about her work and eventful life, followed by numerous meetings at her home.

Research

In the lead up to the publication of the monograph, the exhibition der januar, der februar, der märz, die april, die mai, die welt at Zurich offspace les Complices* offered a glimpse into the project’s research. Selected works were displayed in an associative, non-hierarchical arrangement, intersecting the fields of mediation, domestic work, art, craft and political activism. 

Curated by Mara Züst, Simone Koller and Andrea Thal.

For the monograph, Stauffer’s biography unfolds through a richly illustrated text collage, combining original material with new commentary. The publication includes text contributions  by Michael Hiltbrunner, Andrea Thal, Kay Turner, and Mara Züst, focussing on different aspects of the artist’s oeuvre.
