By taking over software intended to create appealing images for ads or sfx MANUEL ROSSNER creates far-off spaces, often but not necesserily intersecting with reality. 

In 2012 he started CERMÂ GALLERY, where the classical white cube is extended to the digital realm. In thematic exhibitions he shows the work of emerging artists in the field.


Manuel received a DAAD scholarship for SHANGHAI (China) from March to July 2016.
