Christian Jankowski works across video, installation, photography, and the mass media formats of television and cinema. His practice is largely rooted in performance and evolves out of a collaborative process. Bestowing creative responsibility onto unsuspecting participants, he engages his collaborators as "co-authors" of his work as they perform everyday gestures. With a subtle sense of humor pervading his work, Jankowski explores the boundaries between art and commerce, challenging the notion of the transformative power of artistic creation as it seeps into popular culture. Known for his critiques of contemporary art production, his work engages both the social and the aesthetic.

Christian Jankowski gained international recognition for his work Telemistica, 48th Venice Biennale in 1999. He has exhibited widely in the United States and abroad, including exhibitions at the Kunstmuseum Stuttgart, the Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin, and The Kitchen in New York. He was included in the 2002 Whitney Biennial and Performa 07.
