SHIFT is a space related performative act divided in three acts, in which Andreoni taped his phone to different automated machines in the city, intervening in everyday life and investigating the expressive potential of public infrastructures. SHIFT has been realized in collaboration with Experimental Sound Studio in Chicago and has been presented within the partner program of the 4th Chicago Architecture Biennial: The Available City.

Friedrich Andreoni is an Italian-German artist born on the verge of the last century. He grew up between the Middle East and Europe. Andreoni works across multiple media including sculpture, sound/-installation, performative acts, and video, operating independently around the world.

He is currently an MFA candidate at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (2021-22) for which he has been awarded a fellowship from the DAAD, The German Academic Scholarship Foundation and the Art Institue of Chicago. He lives and works between Chicago, USA and Berlin, Germany.

Andreoni's work has been shown and presented internationally including Chicago, Berlin, London, Rome, Athens, Malmö, Zagreb and Abu Dhabi.
