Joachim Koester
February 5, 2015
Alias of Jasmina Sevic, a researcher and author for Widewalls. She graduated from the Faculty of Political Science (Department for Journalism) in Belgrade in 2013.

Joachim Koester is a Danish born on 1962 in Copenhagen. He graduated of the Royal Danish Academy of Art in his native city in 1993.

Starting in the mid-1990s, he developed an oeuvre that could be described as a complex web in which journalistic and historical research fuses with personal and fictive narratives. Koester is preoccupied with the unknown, the unseen, and the forgotten. Balancing the thin line between documentary and fiction, Koester’s films, photos, and installations reexamine and activate forgotten histories, failed utopias, and the obsolete. Koester’s installations usually begin with an investigation of an obscure historical figure or fact, often linked to the outer fringes of culture, such as occult and otherworldly phenomena. This information then becomes the starting point for a story that phases in and out throughout the course of the exhibition. In his work, bygone counter-cultural movements reemerge in the same way that geographical and spiritual journeys are retraced.

He has had numerous solo and group exhibitions around the world. Koester has presented projects at major international art museums and events including the 51st Venice Biennale, 2005, and documenta X in Kassel, 1997, and has participated in exhibitions at venues including the Palais de Tokyo, Paris, Tate Britain, London, and MIT List Visual Art Center, Boston. He is a 2008 finalist for the Hugo Boss Prize.

Koester currently lives and works in New York.
