Luca Harlacher

Luca Harlacher's artistic work is about the sensory overload, the complexity and chaos in our inner and outer life in times of globalization and hybridization. But he does not want to fall into cultural pessimism but to show that the coexistence of heterogeneous elements, the simultaneity of non-simultaneities, "micro-macro shifts" and the omnipresent combination of countless contrasts is not a burden but can be fun.
