Wieland Krause

Works 2000 – 2006

02.07.2006 -

Wieland Krause (born 1956, lives in Halle) has created an open system with the words TRANSIT or ARCHIVE, which dissolves the traditional concept of the work of art.

His photographs, videos or objects refer to topographically widely scattered places in the world. His artistic perception thus ties in with the general status of modern people living in Central Europe, whose life seems to be less and less permanent. Completely in contrast to global reporting in the media, which shuttles abruptly between economic centres and political trouble spots, the artist is concerned with our living space as a whole. In this way, the landscape or the sum of natural and cultural resources always come to the fore.
