Eric Philippoz is a visual artist working with video, installation, drawing, performance and text. He holds a Bachelor from the Haute école d’art et de design de Genève (art/medias) and a Master-degree from the ArtEZ Dutch Art Institute (Arnhem, The Netherlands). Recently, he initiated the project “Hotel Philippoz”, a residency and art events programme located in his grandmother’s house undergoing full renovations. Within a year, twelve international artists stayed at “Hotel Philippoz” and engaged a dialogue with the place and its memory. As an assistant-coordinator, he is responsible for the one-year colloquium “Thinking under Turbulence” that frames the curriculum during the transition of the CCC Master Programme in 2015/16.
