Carsten Lisecki lives and works in Berlin. He studied Fine Art at the University of Greifswald. His practice creates narratives about everyday life that make visible and meaningful hidden aspects of reality, focusing on the uncanny effect of banality. He uses mixed media and strategies, combining more traditional tools like painting and writing, with video art and photography. The results is often unexpected suggesting a very personal almost idiosyncratic style. Currently he works on performances about the current socioeconomic crisis and makes documentaries about self-employment and self-valorization of arcane professions. In collaboration with Sedlmeir he presents the monthly The Große Lisecki and Sedlmeir Show in Berlin, while he has been collaborating with the economist Georgios Papadopoulos in a series of performative lectures about the Greek crisis. He has presented his work, among other places, at Museum für Angewandte Kunst in Cologne, at the Museum for Post and Communication in Wroclaw, at the Atelierhof Kreuzberg, and in the Venue Magazine in New York City.
