Simon Starling lives and works in Copenhagen and Berlin. He graduated from the Glasgow School of Art and is one of the leading artists of his generation. His multi-media works (film, installation, and photography) deal with the history of art and design, scientific discoveries as well as global economic and ecological questions. He represented Scotland at the 50th Biennale di Venezia (2003), and won the Turner Prize 2005 for his work “Shedboatshed“. From 2003 to 2013 he taught as professor of Fine Arts at the Städelschule in Frankfurt. Starling’s works were shown in solo exhibitions world-wide, e.g. at the Villa Arson, Nizza, the Museum for Contemporary Art in Basel, at Mass MOCA, North Adams, USA, in Tate Britain in London, in the state gallery Stuttgart, and at MUMA in Melbourne. They are also part of many international collections like the Astrup Fearnley Collection; Museet for Moderne Kunst, Oslo; Castello di Rivoli, Turin; Gallery of Modern Art, Glasglow; Tate Modern, London; Moderna Museet, Stockholm, and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York.
