Artistic work[edit]

In his first monograph "Socotra" (2011), Schulze takes on the character of the conqueror to explore a remote island. The work criticizes the dealing with the colonial heritage in cultural and particularly literary history.[4]

His second photo book "State of Nature" documents the extent of climate change and natural disaster protection measures in the European landscape.[5]

Claudius Schulze traveled with a self-built boat from Hamburg to Amsterdam and Paris to artistically explore the relationship between nature and urbanity. The results will be shown at the Triennial of Photography 2018.[6]
