Portrait hello loser Fotokredit hello loser s

hello-loser is a visual band, a family business, and a loving and iconoclastic machine. This moniker intertwines the artists Charlotte Bonjour, Romain Löser, and Arthur.
hello-loser is a pun around our family names and wishes to reconsider the idea of “the winner” in a world guided by anti-social and ecocidal industrial principles. We prefer to evolve through interdependence rather than individualism. We embrace individuality while cultivating porous borders. Consequently, we run our studio collectively and dilute monolithic authorship.

Since 2021 we also run the conversation piece GUTS

The following poem – Aris names them Envoyelle – was written by Aristilde Kirby in 2020, and depicts the hello-loser family, as well as some works present on this homepage :
