Schmid Max Philipp


Max Philipp Schmid was born in Basel, Switzerland in 1962. After studies in art history he qualified as a visual arts teacher at Basel’s Arts and Design University. He now works as an independent director and video-maker and since 1990 has devoted himself to creating experimental films, shorts, musical films and animation.

His videos are accounts of feelings and situations no longer free of ambiguity, of bodies in search of equilibrium.
Ambivalent moments, otherwise serving no purpose than that of a brief transition, become permanent. Although he typically shoots in a studio with actors, Schmid is less interested in the theatrical staging of a feeling than in his ability to use video technique to interpolate and fragment images, and with them personages, and thus propel them into his trademark destabilized state.
