Stefan Pente, born 1964 in Zurich, Switzerland, became a male nurse in a psychiatric hospital in the mid-80s, studied art in the 90s and has lived and worked since 1995 mostly in Berlin. Crucial starting points within his artistic practice as a visual artist, performer, text and video maker are questions about the construction of identity through description, attribution and categorization. By means of temporary sculptural object coalitions, installations and performances—as far outside of linguistic conceivability as possible—he calls into question the necessity and motivations for depictions and descriptions of the exotic Other.

Some of his works are conceived in collaboration with artists such as William Locke Wheeler, Ines Schaber, Sabian Baumann and others.

Der Versuch eines performativen Sprechens über Bilderpolitisches

In Anlehnung an John L. Austin, bei dem jene Sprechakte als performativ bezeichnet werden, die das was sie bezeichnen gleichzeitig produzieren, werden Zeichen und Gesten zu lebendigen Akteuren, die das was sie bedeuten / zeigen, gleichzeitig herstellen und sind.  read more »
