Sascha Pohle has been working in various media for several years. With photos, film, objects, textiles, artist books, and often using art and film references, he appropriates representations of our material and visual culture and its slippages. In staged collections, his art often plays with historical and anthropological evocations. There, labor-intensive handmade or machine-made objects become executed as fluid and performative processes negotiating the migration of forms, patterns, or people. Macro and micro perspectives of surface structures and places serve the constant preoccupation with individual and collective memory and belonging.

Sascha Pohle lives and works in Seoul and Amsterdam.
His recent works were on display with solo shows including ‚Passage’, Gregorzki Shows, Berlin, ‘Given Time, Black Sesame’, Institute for Provocation, Beijing, CN (2016); 2015 Home Sequence, Rongwrong, Amsterdam, NL; with group exhibitions such as WALK!, Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt, DE (2022), Festival Visiona Huesca, ES (2022), Macao Biennale ‚Advance and Retreat of Globalization‘, (2021) ‚Glancing Into The Sun, Hongcheon Museum, KR (2018); The 3rd Today’s Documents BRIC-á-brac The Jumble of Growth, Today Art Museum, Beijing, CN (2016), Plastic Myths, ACC Asia Culture Center, Gwangju, KR (2015/16), Globale: Global Control and Censorship, ZKM, Karlsruhe, DE (2015)
