Martin Kohout @ Kunst Raum Riehen, Jan 21 – Feb 28

, 21 January 2016

Martin Kohout‘s Jokes About Machines Make Humans: 2nd infusion solo exhibition is on at Riehen, Switzerland’s Kunst Raum Riehen, opening January 21 and running to February 28.

There is little information available on the show itself but the Berlin-based artist’s practice has long been concerned with humans, labour and machines under capitalism and their mutual exploitation within the complex and often opaque economic, social and, importantly, corporate systems that compel them.

As a publisher, producer and visual artist working primarily with video, sculpture and installation, Kohout’s extensive catalogue is built on what he once called in an interview with aqnb and Video in Common his fascination with “the object that [that object] represents”.
