Biography

Julius von Bismarck is a multi-media artist using everything from photography and video to installation and performance, in works that confront human perception and experience. For Versuch unter Kreisen (Experiment Among Circles) (2012), conceived while he was a [email protected] resident, von Bismarck created a system that fluctuates between chaos and order. He hung industrial lamps from the ceiling, connected to motors that spin them in circles at different rates, synchronizing on every 75th rotation. In projects from a video in which he literally paints a Mexican landscape to his residency, during Art Basel Unlimited in 2015, inside a revolving concrete disk outfitted with a bed and desk, von Bismark works to develop new ways of thinking about physical and social constraints.
