Casper Braat

Casper Braat (1991)

Lives in Amsterdam. Works in Amsterdam.

The work of Casper Braat is eerily similar to the propaganda of corporate entities. This recognition seeks to evoke the feelings of nostalgia for a comfortable past, but underneath the surface, there is a perverted reality. Casper explores the tension between the dichotomy of acceptable and unacceptable in our culture. In his project, Justin Bieber, the New Devotion (2016) the intriguing world of the hottest celebrity in the world is exposed; Casper shows an enlightened version of the superstar through an exploration of the machinery that created an icon. His approach to Justin is not as a mere mortal, but as a corporation.
