Rémy Zaugg

Rémy Zaugg (Courgenay, 1943 - Basel, 2005) is considered one of the most prolific and versatile Swiss artists of the second half of the twentieth century. His interests are not limited to painting, although this was the discipline for which he is best known, but he also worked and researched on urbanism, curating and practiced writing as a form of exploration of the fundamental elements of the creative process.

In recent years interesting collaborations with the architects Herzog & de Meuron, found international praise, with around 15 projects realised. These projects included an extension to the Aargauer Kunsthaus in Aarau, and Zaugg's own studio, "Studio Rémy Zaugg" in Mulhouse-Pfastatt, France, with the latter included at the awards ceremony of the Pritzker Prize, which Herzog & de Meuron received in 2001.

Zaugg was a renowned curator, organsising shows such as the comprehensive Alberto Giacometti retrospective held in Paris 1991.
