Simona Winkler-Fishyan, *5.3.1993 lives and works in Zurich. Her work as an artist and art educator is based on the firm belief that art experiences significantly contribute to a sustainable way of living together. Her paintings, drawings and participatory art projects therefore explore various aspects of ecosystem resilience. Together with diverse cooperation and funding partners, Simona Winkler-Fishyan realizes projects in multifaceted cultural and (inter)disciplinary contexts.
