Michaele Brüll was born in Aachen and lives and works in Berlin, Germany

I realise surfaces that function as screens reflecting modern people's hidden wishes and desires through use of erotically laden imagery. Surfaces made of tightly drawn tights function as screens on to which pictures from everyday media, modern building materials, photocopies and transparencies are projected, portraying interactive situations familiar as part of city dwellers' lives: fantastic stories chockfull of eroticism, sexuality and passion. In my “Potsdam sinnlich“ (Sensual Potsdam), I dressed a heroic stone sculpture in a colonnade, a remnant of the old palace in Potsdam, in red nylon underpants. The use of such a modern fabric transformed the classical beauty of the figure through the addition of erotic attributes taken from consumer culture. A focus of my photographic work, including photo-collages, is how modern urban space is re-defined by large-scale advertisements. I combine photographs of city dwellers in their urban environment on a wall which is in then direct dialogue with the exhibition space itself. Large objects show the considerable influence the advertising industry has on us all in consumer society, and this makes that influence tangible. In my “Hellersdorf ist eine Reise wert“ (Hellersdorf is worth visiting) project, I dealt with issues in the Hellersdorf district of Berlin. I roamed the streets and squares with a camera like a tourist would, experiencing different spaces there, and then photographed these places. The resulting slides of high-rise housing estates, and those who dwell therein, were used to realise an installation. Within the framework of 48-Stunden Neukölln, a shop window will be transformed into a video installation. In The Body Communal- "Neukölln buzzes as it lures you", shifts in perspective playfully bring the diversity of the Karl-Marx-Straße past and present, together.
