Franz Ackermann

Franz Ackermann is a multimedia artist whose practice is entwined with the action and implications of travel and tourism. His works encompass painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, and, perhaps most famously, immersive installations. In his installations, Ackermann is known for incorporating the architecture of a space, at times making use of the ceiling, floors, and hallways of a gallery space. His works are made in part during his own excursions, and in part in his studio, based on memories of experiences. One of his first major series, “Mental Maps” (begun 1996) is a series of watercolors created around the world, which mixes factually precise maps of a city along with his own interpretations. Other works address themes of globalization, and the glamor and waste of commercialization.
