Within the Artist-in-Residence Program, CCA is delighted to host Carsten Fock.
Fock was born in Bad Homburg, Germany, 1968. He lives and works in Berlin and Vienna, Germany and he is staying in Studio Azul during March 2020.
The artist studied Freie Kunst (free art), first at the College of Fine Arts Kassel and after from 1997 to 2002 at the State College for Fine Arts Städelschule in Frankfurt am Main in the classes of Georg Herold and Per Kirkeby. In 2002, Fock received his degree at the Städelschule as a pupil of Per Kirkeby.
In his drawings and paintings, Carsten Fock connects the media text and picture, mixes motives from the 19th century with pictorial genres from today’s pop and popular culture and works interdisciplinary with other artists, designers and musicians.
Fock took part in many international solo and group exhibitions, including the exhibitions “Backpack” in the Bregenzer Kunstverein (2009), “New Frankfurt Internationals – Stories and Stages” (2010) in the Museum for Modern Art Frankfurt am Main or the exhibitions “Die Gruppe Spur – Wir sind die dritte Welle” (2013) in the Kunsthalle Kiel and “Glaube und Verzweiflung” (2013) in the Gallery Schmidt Handrup in Cologne.
