Maurits Boettger


Maurits Boettger, born in 1990 in Karlsruhe, Germany, currently lives in space and works with time
2012-2017 Studies at Academy of Media Arts Cologne
2014 Studies at Universidad Nacional de Colombia

In his work Maurits Boettger questions our perception of time and space. He deconstructs information carriers such as light, sound, and air, and through targeted interventions creates changes in perspective to help the observer become aware of his own perception. Boettger treats time as his medium. In a playful manner he manipulates cosmic, biological and physical timepieces, allowing time to be experienced in distinct forms. His works are shown as video, apparatuses, installations or through interactive applications.
