Studio Busch is a Berlin-based platform for spatial practice. Like an operating system, its various software, built from complementary skill sets, provide the means for delivering highly specialized services. Led by Benjamin Busch, the studio functions in parallel to his independent artistic practice, allowing knowledge to flow freely from self-determined projects into professional collaborations, and vice versa. Services have included documentary photography, video editing, architectural design, 3D architectural rendering, curating, publishing, translation and artist studio assistance.
Collaborators have included, among others, the architectural offices F101 Architekten and hammeskrause architekten (3D rendering and design), the project space Staycation Museum (curating), the galleries/exhibition spaces Import Projects, David Zwirner, DUVE Berlin and DAM Gallery (photography), Haus der Kulturen der Welt and Haus am Lützowplatz (translation) and the curatorial initiative Neue Berliner Räume (video and photography).
Benjamin T. Busch was internationally trained as an architect at the University of Kansas, Potsdam University of Applied Sciences and the University of Stuttgart. He has lived and worked in Berlin since 2011, where he leads Studio Busch, a platform for spatial practice operating between the disciplines of photography and design. As a graduate student of Raumstrategien (spatial strategies) at Weissensee School of Art, he is currently researching critical modes of architectural production within the field of spatial practice. Treating architecture as a symptom of abstract processes, his artwork and writing investigate complex fields of relations within the built environment.
