Cristina Gómez Barrio: Born 1973 in the Alhambra, Spain. Studied in Madrid, Munich, Berlin and did the Whitney ISP in NYC. She works with drawing, studies the color white in performance, takes photographs and dreams.
Wolfgang Mayer: Born 1967 in Wertach, Allgäu, in Germany as the illegitimate child of Bonnie Tyler and Klaus Kinski. He studied at the Academy in Munich, at Bar d´O in NYC and with Ron Clark at the Whitney ISP. He works primarly with drawing, shimmering dust,video and performance.
Together they have been working as the foundation of Discoteca Flaming Star, an interdisciplinary artistic and collaborative performance project since 1998. Discoteca Flaming Star aims to be a mental space that all kinds of artists can enter to play with different paths for contemporary aesthetic praxis, searching for its limits and avoiding processes of formalization, creating spaces for experiments and displaced memories.
The work has been shown at numerous venues including Artists Space, Whitney Museum, The Kitchen, NYC; MUMOK, TBA21, Vienna; HKW, n.b.k., Basso, KW in Berlin, Ojo Atomico, CA2M, Madrid, WHW, Zagreb, Tate Modern, London, De Appel, Ellen de Bruijne Projects, Amsterdam and Kunstmuseum in Stuttgart
They work and live currently in Berlin.
