Peter Freitag studied from 1994 to 2000 at Universität der Künste in Berlin and at University of Illinois at Chicago/School of Art and Design. He lives and works in Berlin.
His work has been exhibited widely over Europe (e.g. Berlin, Vienna, Venice, Hamburg, Kassel) and North-America (e.g. New York, Los Angeles, Toronto, Vancouver).
Peter Freitag is a digital-analog image dérangeur. In his works, he manipulates the pleasant appearance of media images by perforating their promising surfaces and providing them with open layers of meaning. His interventions interrupt the advertisment’s linear intention and functionality and thus open up new associative spaces.
