    Yan Duyvendak

    Yan Duyvendak, originally from the Netherlands, lives in Geneva and Marseille.
    Trained at the École cantonale d’art du Valais and the École supérieure d'art visuel de Genève, his career as a performance artist began in 1995 with the staging of his first work of live art. Since then, he has produced a chain of creations and performances at venues including the Fondation Cartier, Paris / EXIT performing arts festival in Helsinki / Art Unlimited Basel / Museo Reina Sofia in Madrid / Ménagerie de verre, Paris / Vooruit, Ghent / Festival d’Avignon / Theaterspektakel, Zurich / TheaterFormen festival, Hannover / CDN de Montreuil / Wiener Festwochen / Foreign Affairs, Berliner Festspielen. In the course of the years, he has increasingly become a point of reference in Swiss and European art. Besides his activities as an artist, he worked as the coordinator of the “art/action” program at the Haute Ecole d’Art et Design (HEAD) in Geneva, from 2004 to 2014.
