Andreas Greiner

Andreas Greiner


Andreas Greiner (German, born 1979) studied at Universität der Künste in Berlin, in Dresden, Budapest, Florence and San Francisco before graduating from Olafur Eliasson’s Institut für Raumexperimente. His work deals with scientific research and phenomena to spread not only natural sciences but also humanities and artistic practice itself. With a background in medicine, anatomy and sculpting, Greiner focuses on time sculptures to propose a definition of sculpture. His body of performative works apprehends life as a process. When working in collaborations, Greiner realizes studies and performs actions in order to gain knowledge and to follow a path to discovery. Greiner’s work has been shown in numerous solo and group exhibitions worldwide, most recently in Zurich, Tokyo, Berlin, Barcelona, Addis Abeba and Moscow.

Since 2010, Andreas Greiner is part of the collective Das Numen with whom he has had solo exhibitions at Deutsches Architekturzentrum (DAZ), Schinkel Pavillon, Haus am Lützowplatz and realized an ongoing installation at Haus der Kulturen der Welt.
