JOHANNES WOHNSEIFER, Wiedergabe, 2020
Johannes Wohnseifer * 1967 in Cologne, currently lives and works in Cologne and Erftstadt and teaches as professor at the Academy of Media Arts in Cologne. His video works, photographs, sculptures and installations contain many references to design, art history and is as well denoted to an analyse of our everyday life, which has been shaped by mass media, in which the hierarchies of the intellectual and the undemanding have become obsolete. Painting, a focal point of his oeuvre, often contains multi-layered, historical references to society, economy, design and pop. It takes up everyday culture determined by mass media and can be understood as a contemporary answer to Pop Art of the 1960s. The artist's works are represented in many international collections, including Saatchi Gallery, London; Boros Collection, Berlin; Museum Ludwig, Cologne and the Collection of Contemporary Art of the Federal Republic of Germany in Berlin. The artist is represented by Galerie Elisabeth & Klaus Thoman Innsbruck/Vienna, Galerie Gisela Capitain, Cologne, Johann König, Berlin and Casey Kaplan, New York, Linn Lühn, Düsseldorf and Meliksetian I Briggs, Los Angeles.
