Manuel Rossner creates spaces that merge playfulness, sobriety and abstract aesthetics. Often, but not necessarily, they intersect with reality. His artworks and designs explore the impact of technological evolution on humanity and the way it changes our perception of the world.

His work has been shown in international institutions and galleries. After founding Float Gallery in 2012, he designed a digital extension building for NRW-Forum Düsseldorf and a virtual building for Roehrs & Boetsch Gallery in Zürich. In October 2019 Manuel Rossner had a solo exhibition at the Museum der bildendenden Künste, Leipzig.

Born 1989 in Heilbronn, Germany, he studied at Hochschule für Gestaltung Offenbach, École des Arts-Décoratifs Paris and Tongji College for Design and Innovation, Shanghai.

Here’s the documentation of his talk at Volksbühne Berlin in May 2019.

Berlin’s König Galerie has released an app that allows you to experience an exhibition like never before.
