28.02.19—20:00    KASK lecture: Peter Fengler Campus Bijloke - Cirque lecture

Peter Fengler (1964) is a performer who prints his own vinyl, publishes books and founded De Player in Rotterdam, a space for performance and sound art. His work operates on the cutting edge of visual art and sound.  Performances that are always somewhere between intellectual activities and nonsense. They express a love for "ultrahobbyism" and are characterized by his subversive undertones with all their disturbing lucidity and preferences for a closed anti-aesthetics. It is both a commentary on contemporary political issues and a reflection on the medium and the scene itself. In the end it is not what it seems to be, while at the same time it is nothing more than what it is.

Peter Fengler studied autonomous art at the Hogeschool voor de Kunsten Utrecht (HKU). He exhibited and performed at MuHKA, Antwerp; Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven; SMAK, Ghent; Witte de With, Rotterdam; Papiripar, Hamburg and Legno, Milan. In 2017 Fengler was the winner of the two-yearly MK Award.
