Michael Mönnich (1992, Germany) is an artist researching the field of labor and its transformation caused by technological development. Interested in deconstructing the hidden structures of the current data-capitalism he is using installations as hubs of information. He focuses on technical images, images that are being traded as goods, mined from the internet, produced by workers, and translated from one media to another. Those images are not only depictions of the world but play a vital role in interpreting and labeling the reality.
He studies currently at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. Formally trained in Design he moved towards the field of fine arts during two exchanges abroad at the Ècole Cantonale d‘Art et Design in Switzerland and the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague.
He had exhibitions in the Netherlands, France and Germany.
