Eric Fleischauer

Eric Fleischauer is a Chicago-based artist whose projects engage the histories of media culture to examine technology’s nuanced influences and forgotten genealogies.  Working across various mediums, fleischauer utilizes conceptually-driven production strategies to make work that can be read as an aestheticized form of media theory and criticism.

His work has been exhibited at the MCA Chicago, Interstate Projects (NYC), Corcoran Gallery of Art, the Kunstmuseum Bonn, and discussed in Artforum, The Washington Post, Afterimage Journal, and rhizome.org.

Currently he is an Associate Professor, Adjunct at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

One, a large project he has been working on for some time, involves his purchase of a used police body camera from which he pulled hundreds of videos filmed by the Anaheim police department. To hear more about this and other work, listen to the complete interview. […]
