The Berlin based artist duo Various & Gould works in close collaboration since 2005. They are known for constantly reinventing themselves. Their creations are based on the simple but striking formula 1 + 1 = 3. Whilst methods of screen-printing and collages are their speciality, their art can also emerge in a public performance or an installation as they like crossing borders and do not stick to a certain medium. Various & Gould often deal with socially prominent themes in a playful, intuitive manner.
For Millerntor #8 Various & Gould show an interactive installation of their "Identikit" series. Prejudices, privileges, beliefs ... with the Identikit generator you arrange your own patchwork identities. Faces of famous people are cut into horizontal stripes and meet keywords. With each changing stripe the motive gets a completely new statement and character.
