umschichten works cross-disciplinarily at the intersection of art, architecture and design. In temporary spatial installations, states of exception, secret desires or existing problems are materialized, thus setting mental processes and discourses in motion. Their artistic practice is based on a careful handling of material and a strongly contextualizing approach on site.
Alper Kazokoglu studied scenography, exhibition design and media art at the Hochschule für Gestaltung Karlsruhe. He has been working with umschichten since 2010 and is permanent member of the studio since 2019. In his work he expands the examination of the built space through aspects from the performative as well as the visual arts.
