Via Lewandowsky


The Dresden artist Via Lewandowsky and the media artist Christine de la Garenne from Karlsruhe will be teaming up in Peking to work on a joint project. Lewandowsky, whose works can be found in various collections in Germany including the Jewish Museum Berlin and the Museum für junge Kunst in Frankfurt/Oder, began his career as an artist at the documenta IX in Kassel. In the meantime, he has participated in numerous exhibition projects, such as the "Berlin-Moscow 1950-2000" exhibition (2003/04) with his installation "Berliner Zimmer". His artistic methods include painting, media art, performance, photography, film and installations. The thematic focus of his work addresses the phenomenon of destruction, which he applies to a diverse range of objects such as bodies, the environment and the city.
