Michael Müller at Westbund Shanghai

This year’s Westbund Art & Design will feature a solo presentation of German artist Michael Müller (b.1970), spanning works from the 2010s to new paintings to offer an overview of the artist’s practice.

Michael Müller explores the aesthetics and visualization of complex thought processes, which he constantly questions in terms of their sensual experience and material content. Starting from historical narratives, scientific methods, social norms as well as linguistic and numerical systems, he develops an artistic practice that constantly takes these systems and structures to their limits through variation, transformation, manipulation and fictionalizing modification.

In his new works, Müller examines painting’s classical approaches, methods and techniques, as well as its formats, materials, presentation and reception. In so doing, he questions our learned expectations of painting. The groups of works each explore different aspects of the painterly process.
