Klaus Hu works with painting and photography that penetrate and complement each other, questioning representation and its cultural codes. He had been invited for a residency at Santa Fe Art Institute, New Mexico, USA in 2013 focusing on the Anthropocene in general, and on landscape, mining, uranium mining, water rights and property in the South West of the USA in detail.  The outcome of the studio grant by Santa Fe Art Institute has been presented at Somos in Berlin as solo exhibition in 2015.
