Samuel Haitz’s (1997, Muri / Switzerland) work deals with the legacy of queer art history and queer literature and their occupation with several forms of desire. He uses this pre-existing material to think about modes of artistic production in the 21st century, and reflect upon the relevance of terms like appropriation, ready-made, originality etc. Haitz obtained his Bachelor in Fine Arts at the Zurich University of the Arts in 2020. He showed his work in solo exhibitions at Cabaret Voltaire (Zurich, 2021) and at Plymouth Rock (Zurich, 2019) and in group exhibitions at Galerie Mark Müller (Zürich, 2021), Longtang (Zürich, 2020) and UG Museum Folkwang (Essen, 2018) among others. In 2021 he’s been nominated for both the Helvetia Art Prize and the Kiefer Hablitzel | Göhner Art Prize. Haitz currently lives and works in Berlin.
