Robert Henke

We are working with the Goethe Institute and Robert Henke to bring to San Francisco the first large-scale deployment of his unique and powerful work with lasers (see “Lumiere” in the video posted here). Henke’s approach cuts through our notions of “laser light show,” unleashing a long-form performance that is at times eloquent and subtle, at others times nearly overwhelming in its intensity and complexity. Robert Henke was born in 1969 in Munich, Germany, and lives in Berlin. His installations, performances and concerts have been presented at Tate Modern London, the Centre Pompidou Paris, Le Lieu Unique Nantes, PS-1 New York, MUDAM Luxembourg, MAK Vienna, the Art Gallery of New South Wales in Australia, KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin, STRP Biennale Eindhoven.
