Matthias Groebel's activities in the late ’80s sound more like the plot of a cyberpunk novel than like a sober account of a serious artist’s professional practice: he spent those years rummaging around in electronic waste dumps in Münster, Germany
Over the next decade, Groebel spent countless nights changing the channels, rummaging around this time around for TV stills to paint.
The upshot is a series of paintings that anticipated technocultural developments and plumbed the collective psychological depths of satellite television and mass media.
