Wermke/Leinkauf

The Berlin based artist duo consisting of Matthias Wermke (1978) and Mischa Leinkauf (1977) works on actions, performances and installations dealing with the hidden possibilities of a city. Using artistic strategies they create temporary irritations, that allow new perspectives on everyday situations. They explore the boundaries of the public sphere to question common standards and constraints. They “open” the city by using not only their bodies but the material and the tools of urban spaces. Moreover, their works often relate to the Genius Loci and the history of a space.
