Friedrich Andreoni

Friedrich Andreoni is an Italian-German artist born on the verge of the last century, who grew up between the Middle East and Europe. Andreoni works across multiple media including sculpture, sound, installation, performative acts, and video. His artistic approach gained shape under the influence of Hannes Brunner, Susan Philipsz, Ulrike Mohr and artists from the Raster Media group (aka Raster Noton). From 2020 to 2022 he was granted a fellowship from the DAAD – German Academic Exchange Service and the Art Institute of Chicago, which brought him to research two years in the Sound department of the School of The Art Institute of Chicago. During this time he also worked with ESS (Experimental Sound Studio Chicago). Andreoni is a member of the Stu­dien­stif­tung des deutsch­en Vol­kes since 2018. His project SHIFT (2021-22) was presented within the official program of the 4th Chicago Architecture Biennial: The Available City and received a special mention for the Pontifical Vatican Academies Prize – Virtuosi del Pantheon, as the only visual artist among several architecture studios. In 2023 Andreoni received the DucatoPrize Academy Award. Friedrich Andreoni’s works can be found in public and private collections.

Currently, Friedrich is official Meisterschüler of Turner Prize-winning artist Susan Philipsz in Dresden, Germany. There, he is investigating ways of thinking about space beyond the physical object.
