Mischa Kuball, born in 1959 in Düsseldorf, is a German visual artist. Since the 1980s, Kuball has chosen light as the major medium and cardinal subject of his art-creating installations, photographs and other works. The finest example of his particular interest in the relation between architectural space and light might be "Megazeichen" (1990), a temporary project executed in Düsseldorf, which led him to a wider critical recognition and further realisations such as "Bauhaus-Block" (1992) in Dessau, Essen and Heidelberg, or "Refraction House" (1994), in which the artist transformed the old synagogue in Stommeln into a light sculpture. Collective memory and tension between the private and public was the center of his complex intervention for the Sao Paulo Biennale, "Public Blend/Private Life/Public Alphabet" (1998), linking participatory, street and conceptual art. Later on, Kuball was commissioned to create large public site-specific pieces in venues such as the Jewish Museum in New York (2002) or Hamburger Kunsthalle (2007). Asof the 1990s, the artist held lectures at several institutions, such as the Academy of Visual Arts in Leipzig and University of Arts and Design in Karlsruhe. Since 2007, he has been a professor for light art at the Academy of Media Arts in Cologne, where he leads the -1/MinusEins Experimentallabor. His work is extensively exhibited and numerously awarded all over the world.
