Johannes Frauenschuh works at the interface of artistic practice and scientific research. His artistic and visual work is linked to philosophical and epistemological interests as well as to cultural-scientific questions regarding the individual and human coexistence in our advanced information society. A special focus of his work lies in the description and visualization of our current digital and analogue worlds of symbols and the interpretative powers interwoven with them.
