Beat Streuli

Beat Streuli was born in 1957 in Altdorf, Switzerland. He studied at the Schule für Gestaltung in Basel, the Zürcher Hochschule der Künste in Zurich, and the Hochschule der Künste in Berlin. Streuli employs photography and video to create works of striking visual impact. Using the urban environment as his stage, and with a detached, voyeuristic gaze, he captures anonymous subjects as they navigate city streets, typically unaware of or indifferent to the fact that they are being photographed or filmed. Streuli’s first major solo exhibition took place in 1990 at the Helmhaus in Zurich. He has also had solo shows at the Tate Gallery, London (1997); Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (2000); and Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2002). Streuli lives and works in Zurich.
