Christian Diaz Orejarena studied conceptual and media art in Berlin and Vienna. He works on research-based and interdisciplinary projects that often arise in a collective context. In his artistic work, he tells self-deprecating and personal stories about his post-migrant biography and constructs a docufictional view of socio-political, economic and aesthetic connections between Colombia and Germany. Facing his own madness, he holds a mirror up to society through his artistic practice and builds drawings, videos and actions back into life that tell of maladjusted things, resistant people and anti-colonial dream beings. Since he started working with the action group rampe:collective, he also motivates others to fight for an undisciplined world through drawing, film and poetry.
