Andreas Oskar Hirsch (b. 1972) studied film at the Université Paul Valéry in Montpellier, as well as visual arts at the Academy of Media Arts Cologne, where he graduated in 2001 under Jürgen Klauke. He produces visual works, sound, music, and texts. His interests therein lie particularly in strategies of translation and conveyance of meaning, absurd experimental setups and the development of imaging, sound-based and performative processes. Themes of decline and failure play as much of a role as do ideas of the beautiful and the perfect. In the course of his experimental enquiry into systems of signs and connotation, order and disorder collide in various constellations again and again.
