Iris Musolf

About

Well known for questioning the structures of our supposedly free and transparent society, Iris Musolf always puts her finger in the wound: “Which human developments and symptoms can be read on the surface of things: the shape, material, quality and quantity of available consumer goods? What abysses, for example, are hidden behind an air-filled cover of a toy?” Iris Musolf lets us freeze to death on closer inspection.

Iris Musolf, born 1980 in Hanover. She lives and works in Berlin. The artist studied from 2002 to 2009 at the University of Fine Arts Braunschweig with Bogomir Ecker and Candice Breitz (Meisterschülerin, master class student) and obtained a Master of Fine Arts from the University of Fine Arts Braunschweig. In 2005 she received the Erasmus scholarship for fine arts (Nice, France), in 2008 the scholarship Intensive Program AKI / ArtEZ, Enschede (Holland) and was nominated in 2011 for the Karl Schmitt-Rottluff scholarship, nominated in 2012 for the Young Academy of Fine Arts and nominated for the Sprengel Award in 2014. In 2016 she received the award for the art competition of the Federal Office for Radiation Protection (Salzgitter).
Her work has been presented in numerous galleries and institutions in Germany and abroad, including in (selection): Kunstverein Mannheim, Städtische Galerie (Viersen); Neue Galerie Landshut; Goethe Institut (New York City, USA); Konsumverein Braunschweig; International Video Art Festival (Amsterdam and Starnmeer, Netherlands); Biennale for Young Art Moskau (Tsaritsino Museum Moskau, Russia); Biennale Mulhouse (France); Art Labor Gallery (Shanghai, China); Galerie Anita Beckers (Frankfurt a.M.); Galerie Perpetuel (Frankfurt a.M.); Galerie Manzara (Istanbul, Turkey) and Galerie Gilla Lörcher I Contemporary Art (Berlin).
