Gerwald Rockenschaub

17/5 2013 

Gerwald Rockenschaub moves between club and pop culture. As a DJ and visual artist he succeeds in drawing parallels between music and forms of expanded painting. Using simple means and clear structures, Rockenschaub creates visual and aural works that are notable for their serial efficiency, rhythmic dynamism, and love of graphic order. He strains the point of friction between pictorial presence and immaterial sound to its extreme, and marries club culture and an aesthetic that makes references to Pop Art to enter into a surprising synthesis. Rockenschaub will be DJing at Kunsthalle Wien.

Gerwald Rockenschaub (*1952) is an artist and Techno DJ. He lives and works in Berlin. His art works were shown at ZKM in Karlsruhe, documenta 12 in Kassel, and at Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg.
