Gregor Kuschmirz, *1978 in Stuttgart

Gregor Kuschmirz' work ranges between the topics 'public space', 'market economy' and 'media impact'.

Globalisation of markets affects already the most remote spots, while the impact of digitalisation on our everyday life keeps growing. How is this going to change our manners, our self-conception and the spaces of social exchange? Keeping track of the politically and technologically driven change of values, Kuschmirz developes formats, which deal with its effect on cultural techniques. He mainly expresses his considerations via interactive installations, performances, videos and conceptional works of art. Kuschmirz has amongst others participated in exhibitions at Centre Pompidou in Paris, Shanghai Art Museum, La Casa Encendida in Madrid and the European Media Art Festival in Osnabrück.

Gregor Kuschmirz graduated from Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg and Munich University of Applied Sciences. He spend several years working in Italy, Egypt, Vietnam and China. Today Kuschmirz lives and works in Cologne.
