Michael Meier & Christoph Franz

work as an artist duo in Zurich. Places and their social, historical and political influences are the starting point of their artistic practice. In careful, research-based processes the artists appropriate these locations and refer to them with conceptual works. Their thematic focus is on the city both as a concrete field of interaction and as a space for thought. Michael Meier & Christoph Franz deal with the processes of change in our built environment. In specific approaches they negotiate the sediments of the urban, questioning the way it has become and setting it in motion.
