On the occasion of Gallery Weekend Berlin, Alexander Levy presents a solo show by the artist Julius von Bismarck.
Julius von Bismarck (born 1983, Breisach am Rhein, Germany) is a German artist currently living and working in Berlin, Germany. He attended the Berlin University of the Arts and the Hunter College in New York. His project Image Fulgurator was awarded the Prix Ars Electronica and widely acclaimed by a wider audience as well as presented in various media outlets like Wired, Arte and The Creators Project of Vice among others.
Furthermore, Bismarck collaborated with Julian Charrière for the site specific performance “Some pigeons are more equal than others” at the 2012 Venice Biennale for Architecture. This project has also been adapted for performances/instillations in Copenhagen and Berlin. The aforementioned work incorporates a pigeon trapping device designed by Charrière and Bismarck. This equipment is positioned in a public place to capture and subsequently airbrush pigeons as they chart their path within the vicinity. In projects from a video in which he literally paints a Mexican landscape to his residency, during Art Basel Unlimited in 2015, inside a revolving concrete disk outfitted with a bed and desk, von Bismark works to develop new ways of thinking about physical and social constraints.
