Alexandru Raevschi was born in 1979 in Chisinau, Moldova. Currently he lives and works in Bonn, Germany.
His artistic work explores questions of social life and interaction with the political system, using artistic action, painting, sculpture, performance, sound, light and photo-video installation. This results in situational and contextual projects that create forms of intervention in public spaces as well as exhibition spaces, acts of translation and archiving.
Current research projects focus on memory trauma and its aestetisation, politics of invisibility, search for national identity of individual social groups and reaction to changes under the influence of mental features of the contemporary paradigm.
His artistic work has been presented at the cultural space “Zpațiu” Chisinau/Moldova (2021), Marburger Kunstverein, Marburg/Germany (2020), Regensburg Museum of History, Regensburg/Germany (2019), #00Havana Biennial, Havana/Cuba (2018), Center for Creative Industries (CCI) “Fabrika”, Moscow/Russia (2017), Museum and Science Center “Arktikum”, Rovaniemi/Finland (2017), Gallery “co – ume lab”, Tokyo/Japan (2016), East Centric Architecture Triennial, Bucharest/Romania (2016), Palais am Festungsgraben, Berlin/Germany (2015), Zachęta – Project Room, Warsaw/Poland (2015), Knoll Gallery, Budapest/Hungary and Vienna/Austria (2014), Kunsthall, Bergen/Norway (2014), Cente for Contemporary Art – The Ancient Bath, Art Today Association, Plovdiv/Bulgaria (2014), BrotKunsthalle, Vienna/Austria (2013), gallery CândidoPortinari, Rio de Janeiro/Brazil (2013), Totaldobže Art Center, Riga/Latvia (2013), FactoryArt gallery, Berlin/Germany (2012), the Moscow Museum of Modern Art, Moscow/Russia (2011), the Kalmar Konstmuseum, Kalmar/Sweden (2011), 3rd – 4th – 7th Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art, Moscow/Russia (2009 – 2011 – 2017), World exhibition, Shanghai/China (2010), New Museum, Weimar/Germany (2010), 1st – 2nd Moscow International Biennale for Young Art, Moscow/Russia (2008 – 2010), GaleriaPosibila, Bucurest/Romania (2008), Biennale of young artists, Tallinn/Estonia (2007), National Museum of History and Archaeology, Chisinau/Moldova (2006), National Museum of Art, Chisinau/Moldova (2002), among others.
