Multimedia

At the beginning of the 1990s Joachim Seinfeld started combining painting and photography by applying photographic emulsions to his pictures. Since then the use of silver gelatine emulsion is characteristic for his work.

Joachim Seinfeld graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence, Italy with a degree in painting. He has performed and lectured all over Europe including the Zacheta National Gallery Warsaw/PL, the Jagiellonian University in Krakow/PL, Trafo Gallery in Budapest/HU, Tacheles Berlin/GER and Académie Royale des Beaux Arts in Liège, Belgium.

Since the early 1990s Joachim Seinfeld participated in numerous exhibitions in Germany, Netherlands, Denmark, Italy, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovenia, Turkey, USA and other countries. He took part in the International Biennial of Contemporary Art at the National Gallery in Prague and the exhibition 4 KS 2/63 – 40 Years of Auschwitz Trial at the Martin-Gropius-Museum in Berlin.

His works are included in the collections of Santa Barbara Museum of Arts, Städtische Galerie Lüdenscheid, the Jewish Museum and the National Gallery in Prague, the Collection Gomes de Pinho (Institute Seralves) in Porto and in numerous private collections. His Golem pictures were used for the New English edition of the Golem by G. Meyrink at Tartarus Press.
