Paul Wiersbinski

I studied video art with Mark Leckey and Douglas Gordon at the Städelschule in Frankfurt (Main) and currently live and work in Berlin.

My projects are conducted in between the lines of art, science and technology, touching discourses such as architecture, entomology or cybernetics and referring to the history of performance and video art, as well as utilising notions of jest and improvisation. Often I construct technical prototypes, which are tried out by the public and go through various phases of continuous development.

My work has been presented in intl. Exhibitions: “RECORD > AGAIN!”, ZKM Karlsruhe (2009), “Encore”, Museum of Modern Art Zollamt, Frankfurt am Main (2011), “The indifference of Wisdom”, NURTUREart New York City (2013), “Risk Society”, MOCA Taipei (2013), “Monitoring”, Docfest Kassel (2016), “Showcase”, SPACE London (2018), “Datami III”, BOZAR Bruessels (2019) / festivals &screenings: “EJECT”, Ex-Teresa Mexico City (2010), SALT Beyoğlu Istanbul (2012), “DysTorpia“, Queens Art Museum New York (2012), Luminato Festival Toronto (2014), European Media Arts Festival, Osnabrück (2010, 2014, 2015, 2017), and received various prices and grands, such as support from Hauptstadtkulturfonds Berlin (2013).
