As an exhibition maker and artistic researcher, Maxim Weirich develops formats to scrutinize collections of research material in a transdisciplinary manner. Archival research and transcripts based on encounters with experts or contemporary witnesses are gathered as source material which is later on used for collaborative works with artists, graphic designers, or historians. Such applied processes allow an extended reflection and involvement with the source material. By developing participatory formats like workshops, exhibitions, talks, or conducting found schematics of artists such polyphonic examinations can open up the ideas and visual concepts that had been neglected in archival cabinets for decades.
Maxim graduated from the University of Art and Design Karlsruhe in 2019. In 2021 he was a participant at the Van Eyck Multiform Institute for Fine Art, Design and Reflection in Maastricht, the Netherlands. He recently moved to Dusseldorf.
