Lives and works in Berlin, Germany
Christian Jankowski works in the field of conceptual and performance art with a focus on film, video and photography, but also in a variety of other media like painting, sculpture and installation.
Jankowski's work initiates collaborations between contemporary visual art and other professional worlds such as the world of religion, business, politics and entertainment. The work is carried out in close exchange with mass media formats and their production mechanisms. The focus lies on the collective invention and the questioning of its power: Testing the image.
Jankowski's works have been featured in exhibitions such as “Floating World”, @KCUA, Kyoto (2018), “Retrospective”, Contemporary Fine Arts, Berlin (2016), the Biennale di Venezia (1999, 2013), the Yokohama Triennale (2017), etc. In 2016 he curated the 11th edition of Manifesta, becoming the first artist to assume this role.
