mk_MAURUS2014in search of missing pieces

actually I is another one but here I’m me, here I am: I make mixed media art, take pictures and build collages, assemblages, objects, sculptures, installations and sets. fundamentally, I work with lost and found things, try to explore the story behind and the core of them. so it’s about communicating a history may it be factual, hypothetical, or a reflection of myself and society.

to find out more you may have a look to my blog and work journal diary of things and for a selection of finished works the gallery of things, as an example for my photographic projects the site of runde sachen, and the video collage ein wunder sein (to be a miracle), originated in 2011 in cooperation with ceven knowles, is an example especially for my conceptual work.

I grew up in hildesheim, north-west germany, where I learned to love old stones and gained a deep insight into the german schrebergarten culture. after good times in hamburg, where I trained to be a trader and bookseller, I arrived at home in berlin, which is where my father’s family originates from. I’m continuously working in culture & media with words & figures for timetables, charts & drafts, concepts, compilations & evaluations. 2016 and 2019 I was the founder and operator of LUDWIG: neukölln bar – venue – art space where I work among others as a curator and event manager – it was a great time!

I’m a member of HvD (humanistic association), Die Linke (the left), Förderverein der Gedenkstätte Sachsenhausen (friends of sachsenhausen memorial) and SchwuZ e.V..  you can follow me on facebook or my alter ego jemand on instagram.
