Alex Wissel (*1983, Aschaffenburg) has studied at the Ecole Nationale des Beaux Arts Lyon, the Kunstakademie Dusseldorf and the KHM in Cologne. He initiated the music performance group "Lederlust"(2007-2010), the "Oktoberbar" 2010, the "Single Club" (2011-2012), and the "Klüngel" 2014. His works are a mix of sculpture, drawings, performance, music and party. On the basis of approaches by sociologists Erving Goffman and Richard Sennett, Wissel is dealing with alternative models of public space as a participatory and social stage.
Since 2011 Wissel has been collaborating with movie director Jan Bonny in several projects.
At the moment they are developing "Rheingold" a TV series about the transformation of social sculpture into neoliberalism.
