Despite or due to his Catholic upbringing in Bavaria, Augsburg-born artist, musician and photographer Martin Eder's dedication to his art is "fundamentalist" as he puts it himself. Some people misinterpret his obsessive paintings and photographs as provocative, but according to Eder, they are definitely not meant to be. He simply creates fragile and violent beauty by practicing his very own, very realistic artistic (self)concept of nakedness. We met the charismatic and performative, yet friendly, humble and self-critical artist in his Berlin studio, which could easily pass for a location in a David Lynch movie.
