Geert Mul

Media artist Geert Mul has been exploring for almost 20 years the possibilities of generating visual poetry by re-combining images from collections and databases in video’s, photographs, installations and audio-visual performances. In both digital and analogue works Mul explores the possibilities of a data-based mediation: the moment when a meaninglessness collection of data turns into something meaningful. ‘Meaning’ in Muls works is not based on logic, the works are essentially based on correlation, association, connotation and speculation. Mul regards his works foremost as a form of poetry; a creative play with a data-based language.

Mul produced over fifteen commissioned art installations and he has performed and exhibited his works in the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen Rotterdam, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, The National Museum of Modern Art Kyoto Japan, Museo Nacional Reina Sofia Madrid, National Gallery of Modern Art New Delhi India, Institute Valencia Arte Moderne, Witte de With Rotterdam, Museum of contemporary Art Chicago, the International Biennial Turijn and Ruhr European Capital of Culture 2010. In 2010 Geert Mul received the Dutch Witteveen+Bos Art & Technology Award for his oeuvre.
