Christian Holze combines different artistic categories into hybrids. His research topics are the interfaces between art, technology and economy. In his work, he not only explores the connections between these three subject areas, but also asks questions about authorship, commodification and copying in the visual arts. Furthermore, Holz’s works connect the viewer’s art-historical memory with the omnipresence of the commodity image world in the digital age, disguising itself as a meta-product.
Christian Holze (*1988) studied media art, sculpture and painting at the Academy of Visual Arts in Leipzig, at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna and at the Academy of Fine Arts in Hamburg. He was a guest student of Prof. Anselm Reyle and a master student in Prof. Joachim Blank’s class for installation and space. Holze lives and works in Leipzig.
