Andrea Zeller: What are you working on?
Gregor Vogel: My current topic is space and time. I’m exploring geology and how our planet has changed and will continue to change. I’m also interested in “public records,” i.e. publicly accessible data such as court proceedings and other records accessible on the Internet. This offers me very direct insights into people otherwise unattainable through the Internet and self-representation.

How do you approach a new topic?
First and foremost, I talk to other people and try to learn as much as possible through direct discussions. I also use books and films, of course, and let myself be inspired by existing art. I’m fascinated, for example, by the Antarctic Biennial, launched by Alexander Ponomarev in 2017. It shows how places can influence and change art.
