Geert Mul at Brutus
Two beautiful works by Geert Mul are featured in the group exhibition Wild Summer of Art – Part II at Brutus in Rotterdam. The exhibition shows recent work by upcoming talent, mid-career makers and established names from Rotterdam.
Wild Summer of Art combines the rut of the new roaring twenties with the brooding excitement of a holiday love and the freshness of a bottom-up artist initiative. The location of Wild Summer of Art is unique in its raw appearance. The former industrial site where Brutus is located comprises unsophisticated indoor and outdoor spaces. In this artist’s playground, participants can go all out.Read More

ABOUT Geert Mul
Born in 1965 in Alphen aan den Rijn, NL
Lives and works in Rotterdam, NL
Geert Mul has been exploring for over 25 years the possibilities of a poetry in the language of new media. This resulted in a flow of experimental artworks in a wide range of media: prints, light-objects, video and interactive/generative computer installations. In Mul’s works, the interrelationship between technology, media and perception is a central theme. Mul’s practice engages the broader public through commissioned artworks in public space.
Geert Mul studied art from 1985 -1990 at the HKA Arnhem where he graduated with computer animations, video and kinetic sculptures. After his studies, he traveled in Mexico, the United States and Asia. He resided for one year in Tokyo. Since 1993 Mul lives and works in Rotterdam, Holland. In the mid-1990s, Mul became one of the first VJ’s, in the alternative Techno scene. These events grew into interactive audio-visual environments, commissioned artworks and installations which were exhibited in a variety of contexts: public space, museums and festivals. Mul has produced over 20 commissioned art installations and exhibited at the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen Rotterdam, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, The National Museum of Modern Art Kyoto Japan, Museo Nacional Reina Sofia Madrid, Institute Valencia Arte Moderne, Museum of contemporary Art Chicago.
Geert Mul teaches “Unstable Media” at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie (DogTime).
