About us

Quadrature’s artistic research focuses on data and physical experiments. The Berlin based artist duo understands technology as means to read and write realities. Together they pursues a transdisciplinary approach, using various media such as time-based performance and installation as well as classical sculptural and two-dimensional works.

For some years, the artists have been working on the methods and stories involved in exploring our world and the cosmos around us. For Quadrature the universe represents an intangible but very real place for their reflections, evoking both the most elemental emotions and the most advanced scientific theories. The boundaries and limitations the human mind and its physical representations encounter resonates in all their work.

The members Juliane Götz, Sebastian Neitsch and formerly Jan Bernstein (until 2016), have won several awards and scholarships for their artistic practice, including recognition by the Prix Ars Electronica in 2015 and 2018, scholarships from the Kunstfonds Bonn, Akademie Schloss Solitude and LaBecque, as well as a fellowship from PODIUM Esslingen and the Hertz-lab of the ZKM Karlsruhe (Centre of Art and Media). Their works are shown around the world in various festivals and exhibitions.
