Mara Züst holds a diploma in Design (Visual Communication FH), a Masters in Art History with a minor in Modern History from the University of Zurich, and a degree in CAS Arts and International Cooperation from the Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK). She works as an artist, mediator, author, and researcher, and is the person in charge of the estate of Andreas Züst which runs the Bibliothek Andreas Züst, Oberegg AI. Her project, Kolkata — City of Print, is a literary essay by Mara Züst realised through research conducted during several stays in Kolkata, and focused on different aspects of the print medium in this Indian city. Modern-day Kolkata is strongly identified with print, from artistic print making to lithographed circus posters produced in mass quantities. Print as an aesthetic element is also the mainstay of the design of the resulting experimental book project, which has just been released in English and Bengali. It was produced locally in print workshops in Kolkata, and was awarded the Walter Tiemann Prize 2020 for innovative typographic design ideas.
