Laurent Schmid is teaching and doing research at HEAD–Genève, where he is in charge of the ‘Work.Master’ MFA program – since this summer together with Marlie Mul. As an artist, he develops narrative types of laboratory trials in the field of the grey area of scientific and pseudo-scientific physics, an inquiry into this system as a model of social realities. He manipulates facts from history and science history to reveal unexpected associations, using controversial and even refuted theories from philosophers and physicists.

*lives and works in Bern and Geneva.
