Mathias Pöschl

In his research-based practice, Mathias Pöschl seeks to investigate the relation of visual culture and political agenda, generating ensembles of works by juxtaposing representations of historical incidences and realities in a wide range of media and materials. In an effort to hint at new insights into the basic conditions of what it means for a work of art to be called political, Pöschl tries to exploit the cognitive potential of contradictions and misreadings, employing dialectic approaches to arrive at, or suggest, new narratives.

Mathias Pöschl (born 1981, Vienna, Austria) graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna in 2008. His work has been exhibited in solo and group shows at institutions, galleries and art fairs including Leopold Museum, Vienna; 21er Haus – Museum für zeitgenössische Kunst, Vienna; The Armory Show, New York; Georg Kargl Fine Arts, Vienna; Sotheby’s, Vienna; Galleri Ping-Pong, Malmö; Frieze, London; Nya Perspectives, Västerås; Neuer Kunstverein Wien, Vienna; as well as in various self-organized shows in temporary exhibition spaces around Austria.
