Julius von Bismarck explores in his art how people define their place within their immediate environment and how society negotiates the concept of nature. He frequently uses deconstruction as a tool to question how, as a society, we evaluate nature as landscape and who asserts the right of interpretation. At a time when the writing of German history is being revisited, his work has focused increasingly on the links between history and natural philosophy. For his exhibition at the Berlinische Galerie, Bismarck has, for the first time, chosen a biographical approach, juxtaposing German colonial history with current debate about the reinvention of nature.
