Paul Kolling lives in Berlin and makes works about infrastructural and economic processes and their integration into environmental and social structures. His research into and (re-)appropriation of emerging technologies is rearranged to reveal new perspectives that can be obscured through complexity and rhetoric. The outcomes are technological systems, installations and hybrid objects that strive to make complicated issues accessible.
Paul is one third of terra0.org, a research group exploring the creation of hybrid ecosystems in the technosphere. His (other) projects range from objects and installation works for exhibits and galleries, to publications, lectures and panel discussions. His projects have been presented and discussed at Ars Electronica, Biennale de Lyon, Drugo More, Furtherfield Gallery, Kunstverein Harburger Bahnhof, Schinkel Pavillon, transmediale and Vienna Biennale, amongst others.
Since 2020 he holds a teaching position as “Künstlerische Werkstattleitung Mechatronik” at the Berlin University of the Arts and is a participant in the BPA// Berlin program for artists 2021/22.
