sending out bay leaves
Since a few weeks Achim Mohné is sending out bay leaves to artist friends like the Berlin based composer & violinist Ayumi Paul or Mike Harding, (founder of the experimental music and sound label "Touch"), to London.
On the day of our opening of this website we got a video of him writing our adress on the letter with the fresh leaves he collected from his garden. As we understand, this action is not only about supporting each other with herbs to stay healthy or to get rid of a cough. It is also about making other artists visible, as we want to do with this project...

based in Cologne
After my studies at the Folkwang University of the Arts in Essen, I completed my postgraduate studies in 1997 in the class of Jürgen Klauke and Valie Export at the KHM Cologne. This was followed by guest professorships at the Kunstakademie Münster, Folkwang University of the Arts Essen, Indiana University, Bloomington, among others.
In 2007, I founded REMOTEWORDS with Uta Kopp. From 2013 to WS 2019/2020 I taught photography and new media at the ETH Zurich, where my last position was head of 3D research.
In my photo-based works I deal - in the context of a socio-critical discourse - with the function of images that can be understood as a link between social, interdisciplinary and intermedial actions.
In my work, terms such as apparatus, interface and intermediality, the post-photographic and the virtual play a major role. Through media projects and performances, such as " Remotewords " or the series "Seen_through_the_Eyes_of_Google_Earth ", I draw on the new digital media and communication technologies and try to rethink perception and redefine consciousness.
’Digital immateriality and virtual physicality' - these are topics that challenge and fascinate me as an artist. Since my studies at the Folkwang University of the Arts Essen, at the KHM Cologne, or during my research work at the ETH Zurich in the field of 3D modelling/3D printing, I have been influenced by Vilém Flusser, or Isamu Noguchi, among others.
