Michael Fehr

Landis & Gyr Stiftung Residency

Michael Fehr is a writer from Bern, Switzerland. He creates poetic, rhythmic, musical, narrative works that employ repetition, reduction and articulation in order to create tension and serenity, noise and silence, strength and fragility.

Michael often works collaboratively with musicians to create songs from his stories, and his readings, narrative solo performances and concerts have taken place all over the world. Publications include Shine and Shadow, 2017; Simeliberg, 2015; and Short Before Redemption, 2013. He has also collaborated with Simon Ho on the albums Im Schwarm, 2018 and Bruxelles, 2016.

Landis & Gyr Stiftung, Switzerland

The Landis & Gyr foundation awards studio scholarships to Swiss artists and cultural professionals in London, Budapest, Sofia and Zug. Its London-based residency partnership with Acme was established in 1987, and provides six month long work/live opportunities for ten Swiss artists per year. Artists are selected for the programme directly by Landis & Gyr Stiftung and must demonstrate a track record of achievement in their field. Over two hundred visual artists, curators, writers, musicians and composers have benefitted from the programme. Residencies are based in Stepney, E1 and are available to Swiss residents only
