More or less all forms of traditional artistic expressions appear in Bernd Krauß’ (*1968 Nürnberg) nomadic practice. Paintings, objects, drawing, video, photography, performance, etc., but also alternative production models, put in relation to a do-it-yourself culture – handicraft techniques such as carving, pottery, weaving and carpentry.
Different kinds of collective gathering and investigative tactics are recurrent features of this wayward production. The topics covered include everything from sports history and church architecture to urban planning issues and rural themes. The results often land somewhere between satire, absurd nonsense and tactical anti-art.
Recent solo exhibitions by Bernd Krauß include: „Das ist heute möglich“ at Kölnischer Kunstverein, 2012, „We continue BBDG“ at Tensta Konsthall (Sweden), 2012. In 2013 he was invited to work with the Stockholm Festival of Music and Arts. In the same year he was also awarded for the Absolut Art Award. Galerie für Zeitgenössische Kunst Leipzig presented Bernd Krauß in the 2014 group show „Was das Ich von selbst erfährt (Lernen in Eigenregie)“. Krauß is professor for fine art at the Piet Zwart Institute Rotterdam.
