Johannes Büttner

Johannes Büttner (1985) studied at UdK (Universität der Kunste) in Berlin and De Ateliers in Amsterdam. His work has been shown at De Ateliers, De Appel, Rongwrong and Kunsthuis Syb in Beetsterzwaag, among others. He questions notions such as craftsmanship, authorship, creative work and value and situates these in a world that physically seems to fall apart, which sometimes leads to comical situations In his post-apocalyptic landscapes economic processes become a commentary on our neoliberal society. Although his approach is often conceptual, Büttner proceeds like an anarchistic sculptor. With seemingly simple means such as concrete, steel and elements he found on the street he embraces an entire space. Often these installations are the setting for a performance or other such social interaction. Above all he seems interested in the relationship between energy, things that go effortlessly and the values attributed to it. Whether they be hardcore techno fans, bank employees or fast food companies, Büttner exploits specific social and economic structures in order to show how extreme or absurd daily reality really is.
