KLAUS HU 

STUDIO KLAUS HU / BERLIN


His main subjects in the studio based process and for research are: 

1: strata / geology / genealogy of history 
2: the digital / the sensual / appropriation 
3: landscape / the Anthropocene / conflicts on resources 
4: escapism / otherworldly / sci-fi and narrative territories


KLAUS HU works with painting / photography / archival research and for site-specific concepts, questioning representation and its cultural codes. 

He had been invited for a residency at SANTA FE ART INSTITUTENew Mexico, USA in 2013 focusing on the Anthropocene in general, and on landscape, mining, uranium mining, water rights and property in the South West of the USA in detail.  The outcome of the studio grant by SANTA FE ART INSTITUTE  had been presented at SOMOS in Berlin as solo exhibition in 2015. 

KLAUS HU took part in several international site - specific competitions from 2003 - today, like MAXXI, Rome, Italy, SHARJAH BIENNALE, UAE and GERMAN PARLIAMENT, Berlin, Germany. He expanded his studio-based research practice via curatorial training, and took part in several solo- and group exhibitions on a national and international level. Further he self published several books on painting / photography, and had been invited for international conferences for paper presentations (e.g. ISEA SINGAPORE 2008, funded by IFA/Stuttgart).
