About

Michael Wegerer works with extended processes of printmaking and installations.
In his artistic practice Wegerer concentrates on the investigation of phenomena of
culturally and historically grown perception of images and text with a strong reference
to media images and the aesthetics of modernity.
The starting point for most of of his projects are socio-cultural topics, collaged from
newspaper clippings and statistics, which he has been collecting in a specially
created archive for several years.

In addition to his exhibition activities, he also focuses on the design of printed glass
and façade elements within the framework of architectural art projects.
