Florian Freier (born 1979 in Munich/Germany) is exploring social, cultural and political topics while working at the intersection of photography, digitization and communication.
Freier is the founder and editor of Flachware.de, a virtual exhibition platform and early prototype for an art-focused social network site, founded in 2006 while graduating from Munich Academy of Arts and working as a freelance webdesigner.
Freier‘s work „The Eye of God – Recreating Andreas Gursky (Google Earth Remix)“ has been exhibited at international group shows, including works by Richard Prince, Marcel Duchamp, Hans-Peter Feldmann, Elaine Sturtevant and others.
His recent project „Cached Landscapes“ has been awarded by Trevor Paglen and Frankfurter Kunstverein with the „Eagle Eye“ Photo Award and exhibited along Paglen‘s solo show „The Octopus“ at Frankfurter Kunstverein in mid 2015.
Freier‘s ongoing documentary „Pro le Page“ is a winning entry at the Link Art Center for the Arts of the Information Age and will be published as a print on demand foto book and free e-book by Link Editions in late 2015.
Freiers works have been cited in international blogs and magazines, including Monopol-Magazin, Fastcompany, WIRED, VICE creatorsproject, ilikethisart.net and frieze-magazine.
A selection of Florian Freier’s works will be on display during UNPAINTED lab 3.0, 18.-21. Feb 2016, @MixedMunichArts, Katharina-von-Bora-Straße 8a, 80333 Munich.
