Beate Geissler


Beate Geissler and Oliver Sann’s work concentrates on inner alliances of knowledge and power, their deep links in western culture and the escalation in and transformation of human beings through technology. On the threshold dividing document from created reality, on the border between factual occurrence and fictional bringing-into-being, their work scrutinizes the inherent idiosyncrasies of media. Geissler is an Associate Professor of Art at University of Illinois at Chicago, Sann is an Associate Professor at the School of the Art Institute, Chicago.

Technologies as projection platforms for our longing for the promise of infinity, the end of pain, unconditional freedom, limitless sexuality, the dissolution of physicality and the desire for transcendency innate in art.
