Sean Snyder

°1972, Virginia Beach (US) – lives and works in Berlin (DE)

Sean Snyder is one of the most important proponents of the research-based practice that has emerged in the last decade, and is fascinated by the on-going life of documentary information and images, from the Cold War to the Iraq War. He takes the global circulation of data as the raw materials for his practice. In resistance to contemporary art's tendency to aspire to a mechanized consumer society, his investigations parody and mirror their processes.

Sean Snyder has had numerous solo exhibitions, including shows at Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; and Portikus, Frankfurt. His work has been shown in several group exhibitions at venues such as New Museum, New York; CCA Wattis, San Francisco; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; and Walker Art Center, Minneapolis. He also participated at the 50th Venice Biennial in 2003.
