Max Göran | Visual Artist

Max Göran
Max Göran
born in Mora, Sweden

Max Göran lives in Berlin, where he is currently enrolled at the University of the Arts, in the class of Prof. Josephine Pryde. Working predominantly with video, installation and performance, he aims at negotiating critique without occupying a reactionary position to a status quo. He often uses humor and metaphor to approach toxic or controversial subjects. Frequently appearing in contemporary dance and performance pieces he considers collaboration as an integral part of his oeuvre. Together with artist Josefin Arnell he forms the duo HellFun, exploring revenge and purity and a hopeless quest to make sense. He has a background in documentary film, which informs much of his video work.
