Lorenz Estermann

Lorenz Esterman is an international recognized artist. Estermann finds his motifs and themes while engaged in photographic research, which takes him to the suburbs and industrial zones in Central and Eastern Europe with their many different structures and architectural styles. His works are both serious and humorous critiques and analyses of the great modern utopias, yet they also relate to Pop Art and its exploration of mass consumption and everyday phenomena. The focus of his series of works are collage-like works on paper, three-dimensional architectural models, and spatial installations which he derives with a sense of ironic distance from actual buildings from the sixties and seventies.
