BIO
Stephan Hausmeister studied fine art at the Hochschule der Künste (HdK = University of Arts) in Berlin and was awarded an MA in 1987. In 1991 he received the prestigious DAAD - Berliner Künstlerprogramm fellowship to work for one year in London in collaboration with the Whitechapel Art Gallery and the Goethe Institute. Since that time he has lived in the UK and exhibited internationally, organised and presented collaborative art events / exhibitions and in 1997 set up artistsprinting, the first open access large format digital print workshop for artists in the UK. In 2003 he was invited to participate in the Kaoshiung International Container Arts Festival and in the same year he exhibited the first of the series of global art productions: Field of Vision, in Germany. In 2005 Stephan began to collaborate with Chinese artists the Gao Brothers and in 2006 presented their Hug performance to a UK audience and collaborated with them for Field of Vision: Beijing, presented at the Gao Brothers’ Beijing New Art Projects gallery in China.

Stephan explores how visual narratives participate in the production and exchange of cultural ideas and meanings and how information technology redefines artist’s roles and offers new methods of production and presentation. His research references issues of globalisation and in the Field of Vision series he seeks to generate a debate concerning the ways in which the visual field contributes to an increasingly trans-national exchange of cultural values and information.

In his series of artworks: Walking Billboards, presented at Documenta11 in 2003, he re-edited and re-published imagery found in the mass media and displaced these images into different contexts and different sequences thus manipulating readings. The intention was not to create an alternative reading, claim objectivity or truth but to make obvious the subjectivity of visual mass media and the transience of the systems and technologies by which they are transported. A series of work exhibited at I-Space Gallery, Chicago in 2000: Magic Slates also references modes of communication and the transience of visual messages. In these works, slogans are presented as fleeting images on a child’s magic slate as if hanging in the air and broadcast from no distinguishable location. Stephan has continued to present his work as practice based-outcomes but increasingly with interrelated web-based presentations that reference his fascination with transient and virtual cultural domains.

PRESSRELEASE

Scroll across a 10 x 30 feet collage and zoom into 500 images emailed
by artists from around the globe.

Following a call for submissions posted on the web in English,
Spanish, German and Chinese, contributions were sent in from
countries as far apart as Taiwan, Mexico, Finland, South Africa,
Singapore, Serbia, Ireland and Chile.

Assembled by a small group of artists from Digital Art Projects on
location at the Lab Gallery, New York in September 2004, the collage
is now recycled into a website which gives a compelling impression
of how the city is perceived at this moment in time.

fields organised by artists from the Digital Art Projects network:

Paul Dacey, USA; Alison Dalwood, UK; Stephan Hausmeister,
Germany/UK; Jenny Kao Yuan, Taiwan/USA; Iratxe Hernandez Simal,
