Carolin Liebl and Nikolas Schmid-Pfähler have been working as an artist duo since 2012. Both graduated from the Hochschule für Gestaltung Offenbach in 2017. In 2018, the duo realized their third solo exhibition, “WIR|ES,” at the CADORO – Centre for Arts and Science in Mainz.

In 2019, Liebl and Schmid-Pfähler, together with nine other artists, opened a joint studio. It is available for artists of various genres, serving as a platform for the exchange of practices. Incorporating elements of sculpture, the kinetic, robots, and installation, the pair’s work deals with the effects of technological development on the aesthetic and social aspects of human and nonhuman life. Their medium—technology—is both a carrier of social convention and a pictorial material. Their objects expressing different energies examine the nature of electrical energy and the self-perception of humankind in relation to it.
