Julius von Bismarck’s works are to be understood as artistic research, as both an attempt and a method to combine the systems of art and science. With his installations, video works and performances, Julius von Bismarck examines the human perceptual apparatus and challenges our perceptive habits. more
His interdisciplinary approach is a creative questioning of the world and nature that humans are increasingly transforming. The book contains essays by philosopher Dehlia Hannah and curator Nadim Samman and provides an overview of Bismarck’s most recent works in which the artist has dealt with the forces of nature: Lightning strikes, hurricanes and forest fires are examined in their destructive beauty and as man-made natural disasters.
