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 before studying fine art at Weissensee School of Art. He has lived and worked in Berlin since 2011. Treating architecture as a symptom of abstract processes, Busch’s artwork and writing investigate complex fields of relations within the built environment. His master of arts in spatial strategies thesis explores spatial practice in relation to planetary-scale computation, placing particular focus on self-organized habitat production and its mediation.
