”Inspiration is like finding a solution. The feeling of finding something that is extraordinary.” Artist Daniel Knorr uses casts of potholes, which he finds in historic places worldwide, to make colorful and mesmerizing artworks. Join him as he finds inspiration in Berlin’s old airport, Tempelhof. “Potholes are telling us something about our trace that we leave as humans.”
“Get Inspired With” is a series of videos that draws close attention to the inspiration process that every artist must go through to create a work of art.
Daniel Knorr (b. 1968) is a Romanian artist living in Berlin, Germany. His works employ various materials with everything from smoke to cocaine. Knorr studied under Daniel Spoerri at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. In the 1990s, he moved to Berlin and represented Romania in the 2005 Venice Biennale with the work European Influenza. In 2017 he debuted the work Expiration Movement at Documenta 14 in Kassel and Athens. His works are held in the collections of the Migros Museum in Zurich, the Stasi Museum in Leipzig, and the Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich.
