Lou Cantor is a Berlin-based artist collective founded in 2011, whose main scope of interest is grounded in intersubjectivity and interpersonal communication. Lou Cantor’s practice explores the polysemic minefield of contemporary communication, where medium, message and meaning constantly fold back into each other. Previous group exhibitions include The Laubour of Watching, leto gallery, Warsaw and OSLO10, Basel; Language and Missunderstanding, CUNY, New York; Epistemic Excess, Artists Space, New York; 7th Berlin Biennale; New National Art, Museum of Modern Art, Warsaw, 2012; and the Villa Tokyo, 2011. Lou Cantor co-edited Turning Inward and Intersubjectivity Vol. 1 published by Sternberg Press and gave talks at The City University of New York, Artists Space, NY and MoCA Miami among others.
