Claudius Schulze is an artist and researcher. His interest lies in nature, technology, and the consequences of Global Change.

Claudius Schulze holds a degree in »Conflict Analysis & Resolution« and is pursuing a practice-led Ph.D. on machine cognition & sensing and the Anthropogenic Extinction Crisis.

In his studio, he collaborates with a diverse team of educators, engineers, and designers to create unique, site specific installations, bridging the analogue/digital divide. His work is regularly published and exhibited internationally. It is held by various private and public collections.

Claudius’ work documents the extinction of species, depicts the development of bionic robots, protocols animals and their behavior, visualizes urban retreats of wild nature from the perspective of autonomous machines and creates new species with Claudius’ own artificial intelligence.

His book »State of Nature« (Hartmann books, 2017) explores technological solutions to climate change and natural disasters in the European landscape. It was shortlisted by »Rencontres de la Photographie Arles« and »Aperture/Paris Photo« for their respective awards.

In 2013 he initiated the »Erzählsalon St. Pauli«. The self-built raft »Conquest of the Improbable« (built at the Hafenmuseum Hamburg 2015) is his artist studio. As part of the »Triennale der Photographie Hamburg« he sailed it to Paris and Amsterdam. Most recently, he implemented »FIDS Open Research Lab« (Elbkulturfonds 2022), logging the impact of noise and light pollution in the Port of Hamburg.
