Johann Büsen, born 1984 in Paderborn (Germany), studied from 2005 to 2010 at the University of the Arts in Bremen. Lives and works in Munich and Bremen. Participated since 2003 in various solo and group exhibitions at home and abroad. The computer as an archive serves Johann Büsen as a reservoir for his art. The original motifs and the identity associated with them are taken apart during digital processing, distorted, superimposed and collaged. Placed together like pieces in a jigsaw, the motifs play with contextual contrasts of fiction and reality, revulsion and grace, innocence and crime, hate and love. They come from politics, nature,
cinema, technology and mainstream culture. The work of Johann Büsen depicts globality, mobility, communication and information in a differentiated way as a reflection of our time. The pictures play with the imagination and the memory of the beholder.
