Mikhail Tolmachev is a visual artist born in 1983. In his work he investigates alternative documentary practices. His audio-visual installations, photo etchings, and spatial interventions examine the complex intersections of technology and territory, realism and imagination, as well as the complicity of looking, scrutinizing different media constructs and their influence on the understanding of reality.

He studied documentary photography and theory in Moscow and holds a diploma and a postgraduate degree in Media Arts from the Academy of Visual Arts Leipzig.

Mikhail is based in Moscow and Leipzig.
