Born 1968 in Eutin, Germany
Lives and works in Berlin

In the work of Michael Hakimi, what may look like a vocabulary standard to much of current art production (...) is used not as mere technique or for formal adornment, but in order to create complex and personal investigations, opposing official politics with street wisdom and wit, shifting between vernacular and high-brow culture, and effecting short-circuits between remote cultures and eras. Precisely choreographed, darkly beautiful and hiding meaning rather than indulging in full exposure, these defiant and sensitive works are like celestial orbs that can be found hanging in a storefront window.
