SVEN DRÜHL - SIMULATIONS
Landscape beyond reality
Today, reality and artificiality are becoming more and more indistinguishable. Sven Drühl’s artistic strategy resembles that of a visual DJ: he reinterprets, mixes, de-emotionalises, controls and works with contemporary materials like car finish and silicon.
The painter, mathematician, art historian and dancer Sven Drühl (b. 1968) appropriates images from the collective cultural memory and transfers them into the digital age. With unconventional means, he is able to show how profoundly “information technologies permeate phenomena in the physical world.” (Villem Flusser) More

JULIAN RÖDER - RIGHT AND SPACE
Julian Röder (b. 1981 in Erfurt, lives in Berlin) presents seven series of central importance to his multiple award-winning photographic practice, which he could realise since 2001. Power- and marketing-gestures are the main content of these series.
Two series on the subject of thoughtography and conspiracy theories were created in the context of the Ellen Auerbach scholarship of the Akademie der Künste, Berlin and are shown here for the first time.
