“The lecture will follow up questions of the background through examples of text, the set-up of exhibitions and the sceneries in animation videos. I will speak about my recent work, its coherent mediums, its non-coherent characters and the social evocations of patina and pottery.”


Peter Wächtler (b. 1979 Hannover, Germany) lives and works in Berlin. He combines different techniques as sculpture, drawing, video to transfer cultural narrations, values and hierarchies into different storylines of fiction or personal account.
