Paul Kolling (*1993) lives and works in Hamburg and Berlin. His recent works deal with infrastructural and economic processes and their integration into environmental and social structures. His research into, and (re-)appropriation of emerging technologies are 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’s projects range from publications, lectures and panel discussions to objects and installation works for exhibits and galleries. They have been presented and discussed at Aksioma, Ars Electronica, Biennale de Lyon, Furtherfield Gallery, Drugo More, re:publica, Schinkel Pavillon, transmediale and Vienna Biennale (amongst others).
