PHILIPP GOLDBACH
b. 1978 in Cologne, DE

Goldbach's works particularly reflect the relationship between time, written language and technical image. His appropriations and recodings of sources of visual art, and their theory, aim at a history of ideas of storage media, at the materiality of information and at the physical processes of its inscription. In a conceptual approach, the artist unfolds pictorial and sculptural "materializations" as well as "figures of thought" of analogue photography, which formally refer to minimalist image concepts and digital structures. Obsolete in the technical sense, relics of photography become open to allegorical meanings. They constitute the basis for Goldbach's artistic work, which is about recontextualisation, media critique, but also an examination of art history.
Philipp Goldbach (b. 1978, Cologne) studied Art with a focus on photography at the Academy of Media Arts Cologne. In 2016 he received his PhD in Art History from the University of Cologne. Among others, he received the Vordemberge-Gildewart Scholarship (2009) and the Ars Viva Prize (2011-2012). Goldbach lectured Film and Photographic Studies at the "Leiden University Centre for the Arts in Society" at Leiden University (2017-2019). He is also a member of the artist group darktaxa-project. His works are part of the collections of DZ Bank Kunststiftung, Museum Folkwang, Hessisches Landesmuseum Wiesbaden, Mudam Luxembourg and Centre Pompidou, Paris.
