The Biel duo RITZWIRTH has a unique position in the Swiss art scene. Katia Ritz (*1973, CH) as an architect and Florian Hauswirth (*1976, CH) as an industrial designer not only realise architectural projects, but have also been working together on installations since 2009. Central to their work are interventions that are directly related to their surroundings and are conceived very situationally and differently in each case. In their first large solo exhibition, they present past projects as well as a monumental installation that reinterprets the functions of the Kunsthaus building.
