Jochen Dehn

Born 1968 in Hamburg, DE
Lives and works in Paris, FR

Jochen Dehn is as much scientist, inventor and explorer as he is an artist. Seeking inspiration from meteoric collisions and ancient rock crystals, he seeks to expand the boundaries of knowledge and consistently succeeds in creating absurd scenarios. Many of his performances take the form of experiments, yet are never conceived with a specific goal in mind, intended rather as open-ended inquiries. He has worked, exhibited and performed in numerous international institutions including the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, the Hayward Gallery, London, the Volksbühne, Berlin and Deutsches Schauspielhaus, Hamburg among others. He participated in the 11th Biennal of Contemporary Art Lyon and the 51st Venice Biennale.
