A search for the raw traces to be found in our urban environment - a landscape dominated by architecture - are the points of departure for the work of Dutch artist Bram Braam. This search manifests itself in a sculptural and poetic representation of materiality and decay.


His work repeatedly engages with modernist design turning around the shifting reception of Constructivism, De Stijl, Bauhaus and le Corbusier and more. A recurring theme is how control is manifest in architectural planning and the fate of monuments that fail in their inherent task of memorialization.


Braam was born in the Netherlands and lives and works in Berlin. He graduated from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Den Bosch (NL) in 2009 and studied communication and Design at St Lucas College in Boxtel, The Netherlands (2003).


He has exhibited internationally at venues including Gallery Burster Berlin (DE), Marissa Newman projects New York USA, N.B.K. Neuer Berliner Kunstverein Berlin (DE), LAGE EGAL curatorial projects Berlin (DE), Till Richter museum, Bugenhagen (DE), LFN gallery Spinnerei Leipzig (DE), Galerie Frank Taal Rotterdam (NL), Another space Kopenhagen (DK) Import Projects Berlin, Stedelijk Museum Den Bosch SMS (NL) 

Braam has been supported by different funding programs from the Mondriaan foundation, Neustart Kultur (Stiftung Kunstfonds) and the Berlin Senat and has won the Jung-Art prize  in 2011 in Berlin.
