Useful Knowledge

ByStephan Bruelhart

William Hogarth's Satire on “False Perspective” takes on a new meaning with the option of 3D images. Despite enlightenment and science, the difficulty of changing one's own perspective is currently apparent. Reframing is necessary - the work “Useful Knowledge” allows a change of perspective.

About the artist

Stephan Bruelhart (*1953) lives and works in Windisch, Switzerland and Berlin. With his analogue and digital art, SB playfully questions the digital age. He makes use of the almost inexhaustible pool of images that the tools, media and art history hold in store, creating a collage-like syntheses by deconstructing motifs and recontextualising them in new images. The result is enigmatic, humorous works that oscillate between abstraction and figuration and appear like sequences from a dream. Stephan Bruelhart studied in Basel and Berlin. In 1983 he completed his master's degree at the UDK in Berlin and worked as a professor of media education at the Hochschule für Gestaltung und Kunst FHNW in Basel until his retirement in 2019.
