Karl Holmqvistunitednationsplazaunitednationsplaza

Karl Holmqvist was born in Västerås, Sweden, and now lives and works in Berlin. Holmqvist uses texts, presented in written or spoken form, to address to the ethics and aesthetics of issues such as politics and religion. The resulting installations of his work are usually minimal and functional; boxes of published texts, computers and listening stations. Karl Holmqvist participated in exhibitions including Utopia Station, Venice Biennale; Models for tomorrow, European Kunsthalle, Cologne; If I Can’t Dance, I Don’t Want To Be Part of Your Revolution, Stichting de Appel, Amsterdam; e-flux video rental; The Fifteen Minutes Show, Stedelijk Museum Bureau, Amsterdam; Gasthof, Staedelschule, Frankfurt; and numerous other.
