The work of the Swiss artist consists of videos, photographs and installations. It was shown worldwide in numerous solo and group exhibitions and attracted international attention. For Pipilotti Rist the task of art is to contribute "to evolution, to encourage the spirit, to ensure a distanced view of social change, to conjure up positive energies to promote the sense and sensibility, to explore ways to destroy stereotypes and prejudices".
Since 2005 he has hosted the show "Sternstunde" on Swiss television. He also works as an editor for DRS2 (Swiss Radio) and maintained the DRS2 theme days "HörPunkt", the "Passage2". He is also responsable for the rubric "Lokaltermin" in the cultural news program "DRS2aktuell" on Swiss radio.
