Laura Paloma

Prohelvetia Art and Technology Residency

June - July 2024

Laura Paloma (*1995)

Laura Paloma (*1995) is an artist and writer based in Biel/Bienne, Switzerland. She writes multilingual short stories about love, loss, and the livestream. Her practice questions the relationship between image, object, text, language, and play online. She is interested in the détournement and misuse of corporate social media platforms, as well as the negotiations that take place between the user and the platform. She works with DIY, lo-fi, and self-publishing techniques, as well as with found or recycled physical and digital materials. Her projects address ideas of authorship, materiality, and performativity of digital and networked images and texts.

She has made a live desktop performance for Screen Walks (Photographers’ Gallery London & Fotomuseum Winterthur), was nominated for Prix Photoforum 2023, and has published a zine with Edition Taberna Kritika, Bern. She was writer-in-residence at espace libre Biel/Bienne 2023, and her work has been shown in several off-spaces in Switzerland.

She holds a Master’s in Contemporary Arts Practice in Literary Writing from Bern Academy of the Arts, where she worked as an assistant (2021–2023) and taught a workshop on Memes as Literature.
