Heavy Metal
Albrecht Pischel

In addition to Commission Roundabout, Albrecht Pischel will perform the concert ‘Heavy Metal’ at Palmer’s, a classic Minneapolitan dive bar. Obsolete postmodern CD racks of various shapes serve as instruments in a richly layered soundscape for the post-medium age.

Albrecht Pischel

Albrecht Pischel (born in Meißen/East Germany) lives and works in Berlin/Germany.
His conceptual art practice comprises photography, film, installation, ready-mades, sound, and performance and aims at the transgression of boundaries between disparate mediums, genres, and cultures.
The often self-referential works playfully reflect on the conditions of the medium in use and the institutional and cultural framework that governs the perception and codes of art and its displays.
In Pischel’s carefully staged anachronisms obsolete technologies experience an unexpected return. At times he incorporates other artists’ works in his projects thus opening up the confines of individual authorship.

His past solo shows include Exile Gallery Berlin (2018), Goethe Institute Bangkok (2017) and Helga Maria Klosterfelde Edition Berlin (2015),
Recently, Pischel was artist-in-residence at the German Center for Venetian studies in Venice.
