Peter Behrbohm   (de|en) 


Peter designs obstacles, digs for narrative fragments, thinks with hands and feet, constructs abnormal aparatus and installs fictions in public spaces. He works in collectives with Anton Steenbock, Markus Bühler or as PARA.

After studies in architecture, film and art at the University of the Arts Berlin and the Royal Technical Institute Stockholm, Peter (*1987) received his diploma degree in architecture. Among others, he has been granted the «BDA-SARP Award» (2014) for the best German graduation project, the «Baumgarten» Scholarship (2009,2013), the post graduate «Elsa-Neumann» Scholarship (2015), the «Berlin Research Scholarship»(2016) as well as the «MAK Schindler Scholarship» (2018) given by the Museum of Applied Art / Contemporary Art Vienna.

«Transformator», «Fahnenflucht», «Verberge», «Wientje's Mobile Bar» and the majority of his works are surgically intervening public spaces as well as its routines. 
2014 he opened a «Bank» in Newcastle upon Tyne. The cinematic portrait «Kobuto» (2016) about a highrise, its architect and his road cruiser was screened and awarded on film festivals and architecture conferences internationally. The elaborate performances «Habbakuk» (2018, with Anton Steenbock) and «Walhalla2» (2018, as «PARA Int.» ) mix fiction with political action and blur the line between art and theatre. With Jesko Fezer and the «Kooperative für Darstellungspolitik» many exhibitions were shown, e.g. at the «Museum of Modern Art Salzburg», «BAK Utrecht» or «Goethe Institutes» around the World.

His label «Normol» produces objects for potential barricades and outerspaces, such as «Nihombashi»(2017) and the «Landing Seats».

With Markus Bühler he is currently preparing «Flying Holes», a cinematic expedition to the center of the world - along the infrastructure of the intenet meeting its precursors, pioneers and monsters.
