Lighting event Kunstareal: the artists

Find out more about the makers of the lighting event in the Kunstareal: Betty Mü, Yul Zeser and Helmut Eding.

Betty Mü

In her work, the Munich video and projection artist Betty Mü defines new spaces through the targeted use of material, space and light. Her imaginative, poetic style and clear installation concepts have been shown internationally and nationally at numerous festivals, exhibitions and events. Her professional competence as a former art director in New York combined with her many years of experience as a club visualist make Betty Mü the female avant-garde and "Ladypunk" of digital media art.

As a designer and artist she captivates with her very own style, strongly influenced by the visual. Her artistic signature is evident in her highly aesthetic visuals as well as in her creative installations: Betty Mu's works correspond to the visual and auditory perception of the viewer and are at the same time narrative. With a playful wink, the artist succeeds in integrating experiences, stories and even profound messages into her installations in a discreet and playful way.

Betty Mü places the artistic emphasis on her video installations. The artist surprises again and again with the projection of concrete image contents with a conceptual claim to extraordinary backgrounds and materials. In doing so she perfects her work with the complex video mapping technique. She pays special attention to the merging of moving images with surfaces and objects as well as to the handling of different dimensions of projection surfaces and spaces.

The freelance artist is regularly booked by major cultural institutions as well as private companies, including the Munich City Museum, the Munich Kammerspiele, Fashionweek Berlin, Berlinale, Baselworld, Inhorgenta, Audi, BMW, Mercedes, SAP and many more.

Guest artists

Yul Zeser

Yul Zser's works manifest themselves both in space-consuming installations and in permanent sculptures in public space, which always involve a site-specific examination of questions of perception and materiality. Yul Zeser lives and works in Munich and Berlin.

Helmut Eding

Helmut Eding, born 1951 near Linz, is a trained church painter and interior designer. He has been working on his own art objects since the 1980s. In addition to large-format photorealistic paintings, in recent years he has increasingly focused on creating light sculptures and installations. Helmut Eding can look back on numerous public and private exhibitions in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Italy (Venice).
