Voices and Shells

Maya Schweizer
Voices echo through sewer tunnels in Munich. They tell fragments of stories about vanished people, violence and memory loss while the camera moves above ground, scanning the city’s façades. Munich appears as a body winding its way through time.

Born in 1976 in Paris, Maya studied at the Aix-Marseille University, the Academy of Fine Arts Leipzig (HGB) and the Berlin University of the Arts (UdK). Schweizer works with different media, directing her focus towards experimental short films. She has had numerous solo exhibitions and showed her works in group exhibitions and at biennials. Her videos have been selected for several festivals and events, including Forum Expanded at the Berlinale, the Vancouver International Film Festival and the International Short Film Festival Oberhausen. To date, four monographs on her work have been published.
