b. 1970 in Schaffhausen, Switzerland / Lives and works in Upstate New York
Olaf Breuning (b. 1970, Switzerland) made a name for himself through a multi-layered oeuvre that questions contemporary reality. Since the early 2000s, he created ambivalent photographs and installations that undermine a simple reading of the surrounding world. Recently, Breuning has begun a new series of paintings, in which he playfully addresses pressing subjects such as global warming. The artist currently lives in Upstate New York. He had solo shows at NRW-Forum, Düsseldorf; Palais de Tokyo, Paris; Chisenhale Gallery, London; and the Paul Klee Museum, Bern. He participated in the 2008 Whitney Biennial and showed in group exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Pompidou Center, Paris; Haus der Kunst, Munich; Kunsthalle Zurich; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; Jeu de Paume, Paris; KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin; Whitechapel Gallery, London; and the Mori Art Museum, Tokyo.
