Valérie Hug: What inspires you?
Gabriel Flückiger: Everything actually! Even riding the tram can be magical: La réalité dépasse la fiction.

Why did you decide to do a Master’s in Fine Arts?
Well, because the programme guarantees freedom and self-determination: as regards one’s own projects, it offers various kinds of authorship and — this makes training to be artist special — forms of subjectification.
