VISUMAN | LANDMARKS

It is time to say thank you to the Ruhr area. The pictures of the serial LANDMARKS are a tribute to the Ruhr area itself and to the artlovers and collectors of this metropolitan area. The serial VISUMAN LONDON VERSIONS is a tribute to the Syrian artist Mohamad al Wahibi. My paintings are done in the salon of his widow Rima Bitar-Vollmer in London in October 2019, based on the works of M. al Wahibi.

André Werner | Collaboration

Daughter of Dementia, 2005, 9:22
Made in collaboration with the Berlin-based band Tagez.

Die Sitte des Bildderfressens (The Custom of Eating Pictures), 1997, 5:56
A pure chane collaboration with Vienna-based artist Cosima Reif.

At the time of its creation, this video was foremost triggered by the rise of satellite television and the autopoietic multiplication of imagery through thousands of tv channels. Little did we know that this was just a foretaste of things to come.

Medienwerkstatt Berlin:

“ZURÜCK GEBEN”, a compilation of experimental video works from the Medienwerkstatt Berlin, an artist-run project of the BBK Berlin.

Diese Reihe beschäftigt sich mit der Frage des Zurückgebens. Wenn wir etwas bekommen geben wir häufig auch etwas zurück. Dabei weist das Zurückgeben in die Zukunft. Für die Reise wünschen wir alles Gute.
