Video: Artist Talk at School of Visual Arts (NYC, 2019)

45 min artist talk + Q&A

School of Visual Arts MFA Fine Arts presents a talk by Francis Hunger (1976, Dessau), an artist who lives and works in Leipzig, Germany. In his practice, Hunger 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.

On invitation by Prof. Mark Tribe, Chair of the MFA Fine Arts Department at School of Visual Arts
