He studied at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts in Lucerne, where he completed his Bachelor’s degree with the short film "How I Disappeared". The film has been screened at various film festivals worldwide. Mosimann further pursued his education by completing his Master’s degree in Contemporary Arts Practice at the Bern University of the Arts.
