The interior designer Susanna Biedermann (1943-2007) described herself in her curriculum vitae as a painter as well. The compass of her works is in fact greater still. The book that was edited by her long-term partner Max Alioth and the graphic designer Beat Keusch from Basel begins with the sketchbooks where so many of her creations have their origin. The succession of drawings, watercolours, paintings, murals, objects, photographs, posters, logos, plans, models, builduings and words together give rise to a mosaic which is itself a reflection of Susanna Biedermann's practice of working on several projects simultaneously. Yet what all her many-facetted works have in common is a lightness of touch, a magical quality and a gift for transforming reality. Her many different spheres of interest can all be traced back to her spontaneous fascination with everything around her. Viewed in isolation, her works are simply different parts of a larger whole, which together led to the founding of the Marrakech School of Visual Arts.
