B: Till Wittwer

 Through a Glass Darkly

Till Wittwer is an artist, writer and researcher. He is interested in narration as a central element for the negotiation of a notion of ‘reality’, especially in economics, politics and history. He creates research-based narratives which he presents as speculative proposals to relate to the world in the form of essays, publications, lectures, games, and performances.

Part of Till’s work is an ongoing investigation into forms, formats and frameworks of education. He (co-)organizes platforms for critical exchange and learning which are set both inside and beyond institutional borders. Part of these endeavors are involvements in Parallel School and The Neoliberalism Study Group.

Among other places, his work has been shown at Hammer Museum Los Angeles, Former West Research Congress at Haus der Kulturen der Welt Berlin, the Biennial of Graphic Design Brno, Museum for Photography Berlin, IndieCade Festival for Indipendent Games, and Video Revival New York.

His writing has been published in magazines and anthologies spanning art, design and architecture, among them Frieze d/e, Letters to the Editors, Protocol Magazine, Bricks From the Kiln, The Walker Reader, and Taking a Line for a Walk. Assignments in Design Education.

Till studied in Berlin, Rome and Chicago, and holds degrees in Theater Studies and Fine Arts from the Freie Universität, Berlin and the Universität der Künste, Berlin. He is currently a Research Scholar at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
