Acme Studios — Beat Streuli

Supporting Artists since 1972

Beat Streuli

Landis & Gyr Stiftung Residency

Beat Streuli is a Swiss artist and photographer. Living in Dusseldorf in the 1990s, Beat came to develop the style of contextualised street photography that is characteristic of his work. First displayed in small black-and-white format, his images developed on a larger scale, particularly in the form of monumental slide projections. These works were first exhibited at PS1 in New York City.

Beat has participated in the Sydney, Johannesburg, and Gwangju Biennials and exhibited and photographed in many European cities such as London, Amsterdam, and Turin, but also in Japan and the United States. Beat’s participation in the biennials of Sharjah, Yokohama, and Singapore, and his projects in India, Africa, South America, the Middle East and Asia resulted in a reflection on globalization and its related conflicts. From 2012 to 2018, Beat taught at ZHdK University of Fine Arts in Zurich.
