Margaux Schwab

Margaux (1989, La Tour-de-Peilz, Switzerland) lives and works between Berlin, Germany, and Vevey, Switzerland. She is a cultural producer and curator working at the intersection of art, ecology and hospitality, prioritizing spaces outside the gallery context.

After graduating with a degree in Hospitality Science from the Hotel School in Lausanne, Switzerland, she moved to Berlin in 2015. In 2016, she founded foodculture days, a knowledge-sharing platform around food ecologies and politics. foodculture days serves as a catalyst for discussions and actions through environmental and social claims, employing a biennale format that hosts a multitude of creative and culinary interventions in Vevey.

The Swiss-Mexican curator focuses her research on notions of hospitality, conviviality, and access to the arts where food is considered as a nutritive, ideological, conceptual and discursive material, approached through the specificities of artists, researchers, gardeners, historians, architects, designers, activists, farmers, philosophers, botanists, grand-mothers, cooks and other forms of more-than-human intelligence. Valorizing kitchens, marketplaces, fields and gardens as potent spaces for transmission of knowledge and know-how, Schwab is interested in how art can re-connect us with these territories in a sensible way.
