Julius von Bismarck‘s art can be thought of as artistic research, as both an experiment and a method alike, combining the systems of art and science. Through his installations, videos, and performances von Bismarck investigates the apparatus of human perception, while challenging our habits of perception. His interdisciplinary approach involves creative inquiry into the world and nature, which humankind is altering at an increasing rate. The book contains essays by the philosopher Dehlia Hannah and the curator Nadim Samman, and provides an overview of von Bismarck’s latest work, in which the artist explores the destructive beauty of natural forces, such as lightning strikes, tornadoes, and forest fires, as well as natural catastrophes caused by humans.

Julius von Bismarck (*1983) grew up in Riad, Saudi Arabia, and Freiburg, Germany. He studied visual communications at the Berlin University of the Arts and at Hunter College in New York, and finished his graduate studies under Ólafur Elíasson in 2013.
