Perception and Reality

Combining his skills as a magician with the analytical mind of an engineer, Jörg Alexander’s goal is to make his audience realize that what we perceive as „reality” is in fact the ultimate illusion.

For him this is the key to many personal breakthroughs — small or big.

Engineer, speaker, and magician: After earning a degree in engineering, Jörg Alexander turned his lifelong passion for the art of magic and illusion into his full time profession. It has been his dream job for more than 20 years.

Apart from his artistic performances, he also works as a keynote speaker on the topics of reality, perception, and illusion.
