Andréas Lang began his artistic work as a freelance photographer in Paris. Since 1995, he has been working on a non-commissioned basis, including video and documentary film. With his images, he particularly traces the hidden stories of a place, be they historical, mythological or personal. He calls it “visual archaeology,” and the result is images that reveal different layers – and are in a kind of limbo, between past and present, real and imagined. Lang has received various grants – most recently the 2017 Working Artist Residency for Visual Arts from the Senate of Culture Berlin. His work has been shown in group and solo exhibitions worldwide, including The Atlantic Triangle, Mercosul Biennale, Porto Alegre/Brazil (2017) and currently his exhibition Broken Memories supported by the Alumni Fund of the Tarabya Cultural Academy is on display at DEPO Istanbul.
Andréas Lang was at the Tarabya Cultural Academy for four months from September to December 2018 as one of the first fellows to apply proactively through the Open Call in September 2017. He was a fellow at the Tarabya Cultural Academy from November to December 2020 and fellow again in May 2023 as part of an extension.
