MEET THE RESIDENT: GuestRoomMaribor predstavlja Martina Reichea

Martin Reiche is a media artist living and working in Berlin, Germany. He holds a degree in computer science and works at the intersection of fine art, media art and technology. In his latest works, he explores the influence of technological progress on the relationship between human and technology and between humans themselves. He works in the genres of sculpture, installation, video and software art and his work has been shown at various festivals and museums world-wide, including ZKM Museum of Contemporary Art, ZKM Museum of Media Art, Ars Electronica festival Linz, ISEA Hong Kong, Moscow Biennale of Young Art, Athens Digital Art festival and many more. 

For Guestroom Maribor, Reiche is creating universal modems in an attempt to subvert existing infrastructure, especially barbed wire fences, to become pre-installed network infrastructure. His approach, which is both technical and aesthetic, wants to show how much repressive architecture can be used in other ways to foster civil rights.
