At first glance Christoph Wachter’s art reveals a certain experience by approaching the issues of death, violence, sex and patriotism.

Wachter contemplates us as viewers, our voyeurism and lust which drives us beyond convention. Thus, enabling us to  define our own moral and ethical limitations. By experiencing  inconsistency we are motivated to chose a different perspective to look at ourselves releasing a mature self-determination.
