Erik Steinbrecher, born in 1963 in Basel, lives and works in Berlin.
His work has developed in two main directions: the area of architecture and
sculpture and the realm of photography. The artist not only realises more
and more projects in public space, but he also takes a passionate interest in
images of the mass media. Steinbrecher released numerous books and
printed matter, which always expose a strong conceptual idea and function
as independent artworks.

He has had solo exhibitions at Kunst Werke Berlin, PS1 MoMA, Kunsthalle
Wien, Haus Konstruktiv Zürich, Centre de la Photographie Genf, Kunstbibliothek
Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, Graphische Sammlung ETH Zürich, Kunsthaus
Baselland among others. He has also participated in important group shows such
as documenta X Kassel, Biennale Lubiljana, Mimétisme Extra City Antwerpen,
ReMap2 Biennale Athen, Lust und Laster Kleezentrum Bern, Animismus Haus
der Kulturen der Welt Berlin and at the Shanghai Biennale among others.
