David Wasch (Amsterdam, 1987) graduated in 2013 at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy as a multi-disciplinary artist, investigating the position and meaning of painting in relation to the technical and intrinsic aspects of collage. Because of his graduation work he was nominated for the Young Blood Award 2013. In 2016 he started at the Master of Film Acadamy in Amsterdam. Wasch’s research projects during the master revolved around the meaning of framing in relation to the position of the spectator. What conditions shape our view? How do we construct an image or reality and when do we make it our own? When is our position changing reality, and when is reality changing our position?

When a person disappears off-frame, he doesn’t fall off the screen, but disappears in time.

In 2018 he graduated with a physical installation ‘Inside nature, Outside the square’, as well as an online project: *
