Claas Gutsche

*1982, Blankenburg / Harz, Germany

Taking its subject matter from where suburbia meets the natural landscape, the work of Claas Gutsche is concerned with the human living space as an alien, unsafe space, in which what is behind the curtain of an ideal world can sometimes be more threatening than the world outside. According to this interest in narration Gutsche´s graphic works are often dark linocuts or detailed objects in bronze, combined with lost things.
Focusing on questions like: How does architecture influence our memory of a specific time and how do images, particularly photographs, retrospectively alter these impressions? Gutsche explores former East-German (GDR) architecture and remains in his latest works.

The artist lives and works in Berlin.
