KI Selbstporträt 2022

Boris Eldagsen wurde 1970 in Pirmasens geboren. Er studierte Fotografie und Kunst in Mainz, Prag und Hyderabad in Indien sowie Philosophie in Mainz und Köln. Seit dem Besuch einer Masterclass bei Roger Ballen stehen beide Künstler in einem regen Austausch miteinander. Multimedial arbeitend setzt er sich intensiv mit dem Unterbewusstsein auseinander, das ihn zu immer wieder neuen Bilderwelten inspiriert. 

 

Boris Eldagsen ist in der deutschen Photoszene ein Solitär, der sich keiner Schule zurechnen lässt. Seine Photo- und Video- Arbeiten wurden in Galerien und Institutionen weltweit gezeigt. Wichtige Stationen waren: Fridericianum Kassel, Deichtorhallen Hamburg, European Media Art Festival Osnabrück, MAK Wien, Edinburgh Art Festival, Moscow Museum of Modern Art, Australian Centre of Photography Sydney, Encontros da Imagem Braga, Biennale Le Havre und Biennale of Electronic Arts Perth.

 

2013 gewann er den Prix Voies Off des gleichnamigen Festivals in Arles.

 

Er unterrichtet seit 2004 Kreativität, Ideenlehre und Photokunst an der Sommer-Akademie des Fotoforums Frankfurt, Akademie für Bildende Kunst Mainz, Hochschule Furtwangen, Victorian College of the Arts & Music Melbourne, Photography Studies College Melbourne und PhotoWerkBerlin.
