Artist Johannes Vogl was born in Kaufbeuren in Germany and attended the University of Arts, Berlin. Vogl’s works border on the brink of chaos, but hold us in a suspension of a specific moment that questions the temporality of this—is this the preliminary, the after, or are we in media res? The practicality and objecthood of his materials are applied and turned inwards and outwards in so many ways so as to create new dimensions of possibilities for such objects. Vogl’s works heighten the senses in the most extreme and acute of ways.
Johannes Vogl has exhibited internationally and his most recent exhibition was in the Kunstpalais Erlangen. In 2016, adding on to his numerous awards, he was awarded a Global Scholarship by the Senate of Berlin. He currently lives and works in Berlin.
