Olaf Metzel: Plattenbau

Wentrup, Tempelhofer Ufer 22

The artist presents new works under which deal with architectural construction practice and material culture.  Metzel’s works document a personal description of history sourced from the trove of our collective mediated memories. The artist zaps through the visual archive and fixes ephemeral global images in a kind of synoptic picture book. Within this metatextual structure, Olaf Metzel depicts virulent sociocultural discourses and, as a seismograph of the societal situation, gives them a form.

Olaf Metzel was born 1952 in Berlin and currently lives and works in Munich. He studied at the Freie Universität Berlin and Hochschule der Künste in Berlin. Since 1990 he has been professor at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Munich, where he also served as principal 1995-1999.
