Mischa Kuball, born in 1959 in Dusseldorf, has projected the flickering aqua light of a swimming pool bottom onto the surface of a Berlin bridge, built a glittering solar system from a disco ball and mirrors and hung spotlights over the footprint of an old bunker hidden under the streets of Lunenburg, Germany. He's also trained his spotlights on contemporary politics, hanging 10 of them over a red carpet outside the Parliament Building in Copenhagen, and then again trained them on his viewers, installing the same piece at the entrance to a museum space. Throughout all this he's been featured in solo exhibitions in Europe, Australia, and the U.S., and as far afield as Tokyo and Sao Paulo. A forthcoming midcareer retrospective--to include all of the works documented here--is expected to travel to Denmark, Finland, Austria, Italy, Great Britain, Australia, China and Japan.
