Karl Holmqvist

A new Vitrine and Lecture/Performance by Artist Karl Holmqvist, opening on Saturday 14th of April at Nicc Brussels!

Born in Vasteras, Sweden, in 1964, Karl Holmqvist now lives and works in Berlin. Holmqvist deals with texts, presenting them in written or spoken form, in which he deals with the ethics and aesthetics of issues such as politics and religion. The resulting gallery based installations of his work are usually minimal and functional; boxes of published texts, computers and listening stations. He also participates in concert-style presentations and has released CDs and 7inch vinyls of his spoken work, including Make It Happen, a compilation of young Swedish artists by the record label of the same name. Holmqvist regularly shown with Sparwasser in Berlin, and has had solo and group exhibitions internationally, including Hamburger Bahnhof (2004), KW (2001), and BuroFriedrich (2000), all Berlin; Galleri Index (2003) and Kulturhuset (2002), both Stockholm; CMU Art Museum, Chang Mai (2002); and Utopia Station at the Venice Biennale (2003).
