Beerstecher’s work, whether in video, photographic, installation, or object form, has as its starting point in collage. He associates environments with objects displaced from their original, predictable contexts, and thus builds new layers of meaning by exploring the absurd. Beerstecher moved to Brazil four years ago; since then, he has developed projects that combine his interest in nature with insights from experiences in metropolises such as Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo.

In 2016, the artist participated in the following group exhibitions: “After the Future” (“Depois do Futuro”), at Parque Lage, Rio de Janeiro and Till it’s gone / ikonoTV “Art Speaks Out” at Istanbul Modern, Turkey. In 2015, he had the following solo shows: “Displacements” (“Deslocamentos”), at Funarte Gallery in São Paulo; “Viagem através”, at Joaquim Nabuco Foundation in Recife; and “Land-Sailor”, at Kunsthalle Göppingen and Kunstverein Wilhelmshöhe, Germany.

Also in 2015, Beerstecher participated in “Expanded Senses” – B3 Biennial of the Moving Image at the Museum Angewandte Kunst, Frankfurt, and was selected to show in “Verbo”, at Gallery Vermelho, São Paulo, and “Abre Alas”, at A Gentil Carioca, Rio de Janeiro. In 2014, he won the Funarte Prize for Contemporary Art, São Paulo, was awarded an Artist Residency Project from the Joaquim Nabuco Foundation, and participated in “500 Years of Future” at the II Biennial of Montevideo, Uruguay.
