Moritz Fehr is an artist creating sound and film works. His projects often emerge from comprehensive research and combine a site-specific, place-based and documentary practice with the use of spatial and dimensional media, such as sound installations or moving images in stereoscopic 3D. Through the creation of immersive listening/viewing spaces and situations, sonic implications or interventions (in real and virtual realms), he addresses the political, social, and psycho-physical effects that sound and music, technology and infrastructure, the notion of history and human interaction with nature have on the perception of the present.
An abandoned gold- and copper mine, the empty frame of the stolen painting The Concert by Vermeer, the Veterinary Anatomy Theatre in Berlin and a historic large-scale panoramic painting in Bavaria have been, among others, subjects of his work.
Moritz has presented his projects internationally, for example at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum (Boston), Skulpturenmuseum Glaskasten (Marl), Barrick Museum of Art (Las Vegas), Youkobo Art Space (Tokyo), The Museum of Jurassic Technology (Los Angeles), Kunstsaele (Berlin), Beyond 3D Festival (Karlsruhe), Ethnological Museum (Berlin), After the Butcher Gallery (Berlin), Tieranatomisches Theater (Berlin), European Media Arts Festival (Osnabrück), Universalmuseum Joanneum (Graz), Smithsonian Hirshhorn Museum (Washington DC), Arko Art Center (Seoul), Kunstverein Hildesheim, Deutsches Hygiene-Museum (Dresden), Goethe-Institute (Paris) and Kunstmuseum Basel.
