Christoph Faulhaber

is known for his political and socially critical projects.

Viewers find themselves captivated by the edgy unconventionality of the works of Christoph Faulhaber, which point out the contradictions and abysses of our society today. What at first seems like a phenomenon far distant from everyday life ultimately reveals a fascinating topicality. Marshall McLuhan talked about “art as radar.” It is an “early warning system that allows us to recognize social and psychological weaknesses far in advance.” There is hardly any other artist to whom this applies as much as it does to Faulhaber and his art, which dares to look toward the future in order to show, what the consequences of our present day might be. 

His work has been seen in such institutions as the Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt, Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden, Kunsthalle Düsseldorf, the Museo Reina Sofía Madrid, the National Gallery Prague, as well as in Mexico, Lagos, and Venice.
