Markus Schinwald (born in 1973) has been dividing his life between Vienna and Los Angeles. Between Freud and Lynch, Prater and Mulholland Drive, Biedermeier and the Black Sun. He moves from one world to the other the way people switch channels. In a trice. With the same fluidity, he tacks between performance, visual arts and films, without sticking to any particular medium. Schinwald came to art via fashion and theory, and displays a pronounced liking for detail and curiosity, a fascination which sets his œuvre—a highly charged aesthetic collection of curios in which the human being, transformed into marionette-like dolls by physical extensions, prostheses, and mechanical apparatuses, stands in the focal point of observation—in the depths of contemporary desire, alienation and fetishism.
Edited by Markus Heinzelmann and Nicolaus Schafhausen.
