About Moritz Fehr
Moritz Fehr is an independent artist, composer and researcher currently living and working in Berlin. Following a conceptual and research-based approach, he explores constellations of objectivity and emotion, technology and nature, and psychological and perceptual aspects of listening and seeing. He realizes works with sound and moving images, which he often presents as site-specific installations, interventions or environments.
His artistic projects have been exhibited internationally, including at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum (Boston), Ethnological Museum Berlin, Goethe-Institut (Paris), Ravensbrück Memorial Museum, Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art (Las Vegas), Arko Art Center (Seoul), Museum of Jurassic Technology (Los Angeles), Kunstverein Hildesheim, Deutsches Hygiene-Museum Dresden, Tieranatomisches Theater (Berlin) and Kunstmuseum Basel.
Fehr studied Media Art and Design at Bauhaus-University Weimar and attended the Tokyo National University of the Arts in Japan with a scholarship from the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). Also in Weimar, he completed a Ph.D. in Fine Arts.
Evocation, Installation, Simulation
In his talk, Moritz Fehr will discuss a selection of his projects in which he works with site-specific installations, interventions or composed and simulated spaces to artistically reflect historical, environmental and perceptual phenomena. In these works, the absent is evoked, the sense of time is expanded into space, and the archived is reinstated in the now.
