Edition Info

Humans since 1982 is a interdisciplinary team based in Stockholm, Sweden that defies traditional art & design categorizations. They were established in 2009 by Bastian Bischoff (b. 1982, Germany) and Per Emanuelsson (b. 1982, Sweden). The studio is co-owned with engineer David Cox (b. 1983, Australia). Humans since 1982 is also comprised of international programmers, designers and technicians who collaborate on projects from inception to installation.

The internationally acclaimed kinetic sculptures featured on our site is a series within their portfolio. Humans since 1982's work is recognized for elevating and subverting everyday objects (whether clocks, smartphones or surveillance equipment), visual puns and the pursuit of obtaining the unobtainable. Equally playful and precise, industrially produced objects are liberated from their administrative functions to become visually engaging and technically challenging artworks. As with most art, there is a complex methodology behind their deceptively minimal surfaces.

Humans since 1982 exhibits worldwide at leading galleries, fairs and institutions.
