Johannes Wohnseifer was born in Cologne in 1967, and still lives and works there. Since his childhood, he has been engaged in art and from very early on, also in collecting, as exemplified in his contribution to the exhibition “Individual Stories” at Kunsthalle Wien, in 2015. Signs, codes, archives and everyday objects are an integral part of his work as an artist. The use and the evolution of language is a frequent subject of his textual works. Since 2007, Johannes Wohnseifer has been a professor of painting and sculpture at the Academy of Media Arts in Cologne.
