On the 5th of January at 6PM we are opening Christoph Mügge’s exhibition “PDF Export Straight from the Printing Press” in TYPA gallery.
Christoph Mügge has been a grant holder of the TYPA Residency for Nordic and Baltic Artists for a three months period. Throughout his residency, Mügge delved into diverse artistic techniques to scrutinize the fragility and significance of life, unravelling the evolution of communication across epochs, the deceptive recollection of places, and the dissemination of misinformation about historical figures. His artistic expression merges the contemporary digital age with vintage technologies spanning different eras. Mügge’s creations resonate with timeless expressions and incorporate traditional printmaking techniques, resulting in a fusion of past and present.
Christoph Mügge is a German-born artist who graduated from Kunstakademie Düsseldorf in 2013 and is now based in Malmö, Sweden. He mainly realizes large-scale site-specific projects based on a combination of found material and his own distinct style in a variety of techniques. His exhibitions explore themes such as how conflict affects our everyday lives, the physical and digital traces we leave behind when we die, the challenge of storytelling and the distortion of historical facts.
Exhibition is opened from 05.01.24 – 04.02.2024 in TYPA Gallery.
TYPA gallery is open Wed-Sun 12PM – 6PM. Visiting the gallery is free.
The exhibition and residency are funded by the Nordic-Baltic Mobility Programme for Culture.
