Till Ansgar Baumhamer
Dr. Till Ansgar Baumhauer (Ph.D.), born in 1972, is a freelance artist, curator and publicist in Dresden, Germany. After completing a degree in Painting and Fine Arts, he received his doctorate at the Bauhaus University Weimar in 2015.
For more than 20 years, the post-doctoral researcher and artist has focused on the relationship between violence and its aestheticization and visualization. What traces do historical events leave behind in the narratives and images of everyday culture? How are societies influenced by war experiences? How does war experience affect the peace-time? How does the history of a country and its people influence their perception of recent warlike events?
In 2019, he went to Vietnam as a artist - in - residency in Heritage Space's annual contemporary international art exchange project called ‘Month of Art Practice'.
