Jens Settergren

Jens Settergren is concerned with the production of collective imaginaries, contemporary mythologies, desire, and visual culture.  His works reflect how these subjects are expressed in images, objects, and language. Working individually and collectively, he explores correlations between technology, nature, escapism, and power. Lately his work has taken the form of immersive installations synthesizing different means of expression revolving around the notions of simulation and synesthesia – incorporating smell, temperature, sound, and color as a strategy to evoke various mental imagery.

Jens Settergren has exhibited work at die raum, Berlin; INCA Institute, Portland; and Kunsthal Aarhus, among others.

Fritjof Mangerich has exhibited at Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg, Germany; Salian Art Space, Lembang, Jawa Barat, Indonesia; and Kuenstlerforum Bonn, Germany, among others.
