Daniel Wiesenfeld

My work is human-centric with all its psycho-social implications and distortions. Lately I've become bored with the limitations of the rectangle, so I began cutting up rectangular surfaces and reassembling them into shapes. My experimentation with glass as material, painting ground and architectural/sculptural component has further expanded my practice.

Daniel Wiesenfeld (*1969 in Buffalo, NY) studied painting at the Akademie der Künste, München (Diploma 1993) and Queens College, NY (MFA 1996). Since 2000 he lives and works in Berlin. His work has been shown at Haus der Kunst Munich, Jewish Museum Berlin, Uferhallen Berlin, Eagle Rock Art Center (LA), Bendix Building (LA), Klowden Mann Gallery (LA), Torrance Art Museum (LA), Roulette New York, among others. He is the initiator/co-founder of the project space HilbertRaum, Berlin and the founder/co-director of B-LA CONNECT, an exchange project between Berlin and Los Angeles based non-commercial art spaces. He is the recipient of a research stipend in 2021 from the Stiftung Kulturwerk, a work stipend in 2020 from the Berlin Senate as well as travel grants in 2018 and 2022 from the Berlin Senate. The Checkpoint Charlie Foundation, the Berlin Senate and the Goethe Institute, Los Angeles have been kind supporters of the exchange project B-LA CONNECT.
