Born 1984 in Berlin/Germany.
Florian Goldmann studied fine arts with a focus on sculpture and new media in Edinburgh, Athens and Berlin (UdK). He graduated from UdK in 2012 with the publication of Flexible Signposts to Coded Territories (AKV Berlin), in which the graffiti of football fans in Athens is analyzed for its potential function as a system of fluid signage.
Supported by the state of Berlin’s Elsa-Neumann-Scholarship he visited the Ukraine, Belarus and Japan in 2013, researching on how catastrophe events are visualized and imparted using models. Results have been shown in a solo exhibition in Tokyo (Modeling Catastrophe – A Test Arrangement, Studio 1-8-5) and in group exhibitions such as at Distant Observations. Fukushima in Berlin, Kunstraum Kreuzberg/Bethanien).
Working with the collective STRATAGRIDS since 2012, contributions to publications and exhibitions were developed, such as in the context of the Anthropocene Project at Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin (2013/2014).
Florian Goldmann is currently pursuing his PhD at the DFG Research Training Centre »Visibility and Visualisation – Hybrid Forms of Pictorial Knowledge« at University of Potsdam, investigating the utilization of models as means of representing, communicating, commemorating, as well as predicting catastrophic events.
