Julius von Bismarck

Julius von Bismarck (b. 1983) examines, with his multidisciplinary practice, contemporary intersections of nature and civilisation, knowledge and cultural imagi- nation, individual behaviour and social norms. Through a diverse range of mediums including photography, film, installation, sculpture, perfor- mance, and landscape, von Bismarck explores encounters with ele- mental forces that surpass human perception and rationality. His works are shaped by research-driven experiments that bridge the realms of physics, technology, and social sciences. Having studied at the Berlin Institute for Spatial Experiments under the guidance of Olafur Eliasson (2013) and completed a residency at CERN, the European Organiza- tion for Nuclear Research (2012), von Bismarck seamlessly navigates between science and invention, intertwining references to literature, history, film, and philosophies. By decontextualising, manipulating, ironising, and reconstructing reality, whether through found objects in everyday life or site-specific installations in remote locations, von Bis- marck’s oeuvre prompts contemplation of humankind's relationship with its environment.
