A collection of photographs of mysterious territory.
Steinbrecher's Superfundi, a collection of photographs featuring hills, trenches and graves, resembles a magazine. As a connected series of pictures, Superfundi could refer to a ludicrous, mysterious territory, pristine and devastated at the same time.
Erik Steinbrecher (born 1963 in Basel, lives and works in Berlin) is known to a wide international audience particularly since his participation in documenta X (1997) as well as further major institutional presentations such as at Kunst-Werke in Berlin, MoMA PS1 in New York, the Kunsthalle Vienna, the Museum Haus Konstruktiv in Zurich or The Weserburg Museum of Modern Art in Bremen. His work as artist has developed in two main directions; the areas of sculpture and architecture as well as the realm of publication. Steinbrecher released numerous books and printed matters, which always expose a strong conceptual idea and function as independent artworks.
