* 24.10.1988 in Zittau, Saxony, GDR. Lives and works in Halle an der Saale, Germany

Johannes explores public space and examines both historical and current social trends. Depending on the project he works in the fields of video art, conceptual object art or installation and collage. In doing so, he always reverts to the material glass. The artist's themes are normativity and cultural developments in the Antropocene. He fundamentally deals with the human being in general – the human consciousness as part and counterpart of a natural system. Furthermore, his art questions the truth content of given social categories, especially with regard to current social transformation processes.

After his training as a stone carver in Dresden Johannes Rudloff assisted in 2012-13 at the Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop (UK) in the field of sculpting. He then received the Leonardo da Vinci - Scholarship ('Arbeit und Leben Hamburg e. V.') in order to attend the Master-Class-Studies at the Johannes Steinhäuser Art School in Lasa (Italy). Since 2015 he is studying Fine Art in the class of Prof. Christine Triebsch at the University of Art and Design Burg Giebichenstein Halle. In 2017 he got an Erasmus-Plus-Scholarship to study two semesters at the University of Leeds - School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies with Prof. Griselda Pollock and Dr. Sam Belinfante.
