Spiros Hadjidjanos

Visual Artist

Spiros Hadjidjanos (*1978) is a Greek visual artist who lives and works in Berlin. Hadjidjanos studied with a DAAD scholarship at the Berlin University of the Arts (UdK) where he was awarded the Meisterschülerpreis des Präsidenten. Currently, he is a researcher at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp. His practice spans across different media and is informed by his critical reflection on technological processes and his personal biography. Since the beginning of his artistic practice, he has explored computational images by technological means, primarily referencing the transformation from photographic record to data points with works that traverse spatial, temporal, calculable, and material dimensions. He has created set-design for theaters such as the Volksbühne in Berlin and Kammerspiele in Munich and has exhibited his work in galleries and institutions such as the Yerba Buena Center for The Arts in San Francisco, KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin, Städel Museum in Frankfurt, Musée d’Art Moderne and Palais de Tokyo in Paris and K20 Düsseldorf.

    Connections made by me

    Respectively it is targeted to philosophers and researchers, who are interested in conversing with artists, sharing knowledge and also learning from their artistic practice.It is a lab where visual artists mostly work with philosophers and not exclusively on philosophy. In that respect philosophical texts and wider topics may be in our areas of interest more as a means to explore seeing and thinking rather than the end on which we focus to extract information. It is lab which also aims at creating through experimentation and transfigurations of artefacts material which may raise philosophical questions and discussion.
