Object workshop
With Florian Schmidt, Magister Artium

There will be an exciting course at the interface between painting and sculpture, taught by the renowned Austrian artist Florian Schmidt, who has been teaching at the Bauhaus University in Weimar for five years.

Florian Schmidt (born 1980 in Raabs/Thaya) creates pictorial bodies in which he explores the relationship between space, material and colour. The results of this research are wall works and free-standing sculptures. Schmidt's way of working reveals itself as a process of cyclic deepening of thought; as a cycle in which existing works reconnect with the dynamic of the work process, for which the factor of repetition appears to be crucial. Schmidt exhibits his work internationally in solo and group exhibitions, for example at the Kunsthalle Krems, the Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art, Peekskill, New York, the Princeton University Art Museum, the Musée du Pays de Sarrebourg, the MUMOK, Vienna, at the Overbeck Society, Lübeck and at the 5th Beijing International Art Biennale at the National Art Museum of China.
