Guy Königstein

Guy Königstein is an artist of Israeli origin, living in the Netherlands since 2007, where he first studied at the Design Academy Eindhoven and later obtained his master degree from the Sandberg Institute Amsterdam.

Excavating through time and space he uses text, moving-image, sculpture and spatial installations as means of unpacking entanglements, performing otherness and appreciating mixed feelings.

In his recent projects Königstein researches the different ways we live the past in the present, for instance through practices of commemoration, archiving or archaeology. In this framework he collaborated with numerous international institutions such as the Musrara Collection of Oral-history in Jerusalem, the South-Africa House in Amsterdam, the private collection of British archaeologist Kathleen Kenyon at Baylor University in Texas, Izolyatsia Foundation in Kiev and the Dutch National Architecture Archive in Rotterdam.

From Oct—Dec 2021, Guy Königstein is a resident at the Haus der Geschichte in Bochum.
