Artist / Summer 2013

To Make the Improbable


Paul Wiersbinski’s practice is based on a dialogue between art and disciplines such as architecture, entomology, and cybernetics. Through the creation of fictional scenarios, he explores complex phenomena by collaborating with experts in order to open new research avenues and reveal unexpected connections. His most recent projects examine the correspondences between the behaviour of social insects and the dynamics observed in a superorganism. Wiersbinski was born in Germany in 1983. His projects have been presented in international exhibitions such as #ArtistsBeLike, NURTUREart (New York, 2014), Risk Society, MOCA Taipei (Taïwan, 2013), and RECORD > AGAIN!, ZKM (Karlsruhe, Germany, 2009). He has also taken part in festivals and screenings including: Luminato Festival (Toronto, 2014), SALT Beyoglu (Istanbul, 2012), and Ex Teresa (Mexico City, 2010). His lectures include: CTM Festival (known until 2011 as Club Transmediale, Berlin, 2014), Push your art, Palais de Tokyo (Paris, 2013), and Electronic Visualization and the Arts, British Computer Society (London, 2011). When not in residence somewhere in the world, he lives and works in Berlin.
