Nelson Schaub

Nelson Schaub holds a master’s degree in visual arts in the Work.Master programme at HEAD. He develops research around mainstream cultural products, pop-culture and fan-fiction through practices as diverse as performance, digital drawing, clothing design and music (under the name Être Peintre). His work touches on queerness, loneliness and escapism through the creation of dreamlike narratives populated by multiple characters, exploring the power of fiction as an escape from a violent world.

Nelson is Artist Associate at l’Abri, Genève in 2021-2022.
