Paul Wiersbinski

Paul Wierbinski studied video art under Mark Leckey and Douglas Gordon at the Städelschule in Frankfurt/Main. He lives and works in Berlin. His projects operate at the interface between art, science and technology, touching on architectural discourse, entomology (the study of insects) and cybernetics. They reference the history of performance and video art, and frequently employ techniques of the joke and improvisation. Wiersbinski often constructs technical prototypes that are tested by the public and undergo various phases of development. The results of his artistic process are presented in various forms and media, frequently based on complex sets and installations. Many of Wiersbinski’s works have been created during international residency programmes in connection with scientific matters, such as CENART La Esmeralda, Mexico City (2010), Hotel Pro Forma Copenhagen (2013) and the Goethe Institute London (2018). His lectures and presentations include, 'Elektronische Visualisierung und die Künste' (Electronic Visualization and Art), British Computer Society London (2011); 'Tracing Mobility', Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin (2011); 'Push your art' Palais de Tokyo, Paris ( 2013), Club Transmediale Berlin (2014); 'Kunst im Zeitalter der Erdbeben' (Art in the Era of the Earthquake) Martin-Gropius-Bau, Berlin (2016); and his writings have been published by Fischer Verlag.
