"I'm working on my barriers," says the young artist, musician and performer Philipp Muerling. Because of a neurodegenerative disease, he is in need of a wheelchair for several years. Radical and unadorned, vulnerable and naked, therefore, he puts his own body again and again into the center of his art. In performances and videos, he confronts himself and the audience with the barriers and failure that this body imposes on him, turns himself into a model and object of serial, study-like self-portraits in pencil and explores the enforced rhythm and slowness of this body in the deconstruction of digital music pieces out.
