Florian Pumhösl processes the tropes of art, architecture and graphics of the modernist avant-garde to create new aesthetic systems through painting, film and installation. He addresses the legacy of modernism through its canon of abstract visual language, from utopian architectural plans and buildings to innovations in publishing, the politics implicit in exhibitions and the motifs of early experimental filmmaking.
Florian Pumhösl was born in Vienna in 1971, where he lives and works. He Studied at the Higher Federal Teaching and Research Institute for Graphic Vienna (1989-91) and the University of Applied Arts Vienna, Austria (1989-97). Solo exhibitions include Haubrok Foundation, Berlin, Germany (2015), Kunsthaus Bregenz, Austria, (2012), The Art Institute of Chicago, USA (2012), MUMOK, Vienna, Austria (2011), Kunstverein for Rhineland and Westphalia, Dusseldorf, Germany (2010), Musée d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean, Luxembourg (2009), New Kunsthalle St. Gallen, Switzerland (2005-6), Secession, Vienna, Austria (2000).
