Humans since 1982

Humans since 1982 was established in 2009 by Bastian Bischoff (b. 1982, Germany) and Per Emanuelsson (b. 1982, Sweden) who met as postgraduate students at HDK Göteborg in 2008. With a diverse and complex practice that traverses art, design and technology, Humans since 1982 defy easy categorisation. Their provocative sculptures and experiential installations are driven by a shared curiosity and desire to make sense of the world.

Based in Stockholm, Sweden, their studio is co-owned with engineer David Cox (b. 1983, Australia). The growing interdisciplinary team comprises international specialists including programmers, designers and technicians who collaborate to take Humans since 1982 projects from concept to realisation.

Humans since 1982 are exhibited worldwide at leading galleries, fairs and institutions. Their 2018 commission A million Times for Changi Airport, Singapore is one of the largest kinetic sculptures in the world.
