About the artist Stephan Dillemuth
Stephan Dillemuth is an artist who sees art as a tool for artistic research and critical reflection on the circumstances of contemporary life.  His inquiry into recent changes in the idea of the public sphere takes place against the backdrop of our globalised, localised and fragmented publics. Considering the impact of 'lifestyle' as a new ideology of self-fulfilment and liberation, Stephan Dillemuth has investigated the German Lebensreform movements at the turn of the 19th to the 20th century. Dillemuth is Professor at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich.

The lecture and video screenings are organized in collaboration with Index The Swedish Contemporary Art Foundation.
