Wieland Schonfelder (b. 1985) lives and works in Berlin. Through a multimedia approach, that crosses computer animation, sculpture, and installation, his artistic practice confronts the boundaries between visual and performing arts, moving and still-image, blurring the scenic and the exhibition frames by creating weird, manifestly staged worlds, within which he often inquires notions coming from political theory, aesthetics, and metaphysics. He studied Theater at Vienna Konstervatorium and worked over the years as an actor and set designer. He began his visual arts studies in 2013 at UDK, graduating in 2018 as a Meisterchüler in the class of Manfred Pernice.
His work has been recently shown at BPA Space, Köln 2022; Kunsthalle Freeport, Porto 2021; Tzvetnik - BDSM Lounge, Berlin 2019; Exile, Vienna 2019; Ashley, Berlin 2019; Efremidis Gallery, Berlin 2019; Navel, Los Angeles 2018; Futura, Prague 2013.
