BIO

Francis Hunger (*1976, Dessau) lives and works in Leipzig.

In his practice he combines artistic and media-theoretic research with the capabilities of narration through installations, radio plays and performances and internet-based art. His works realize a critical examination of the historiography of technology as ideologically charged knowledge and power constellations. In the frame of his Ph.D. he researches the underlying concepts of electronic database technology, its historical roots and social and cultural frictions. He is exhibiting regularly, curating occasionally and was teaching electronic media at Kunsthochschule Burg Giebichenstein, Halle/Germany for several years.
