Erik Bünger is an artist, writer and composer whose work presents a continuous investigation into concepts such as 'voice', 'body', 'image' and 'animal'. In lecture performances, videos, texts and musical compositions he explores how such concepts, by referring to something mute and unspeakable beyond the reach of language, become central voids around which our linguistic reality is built up. His work has been presented in venues such as Centre Pompidou in Paris, The Wellcome Collection in London, The Lincoln Center in New York, KW in Berlin, ACCA in Melbourne, The Curitiba Biennial in Brazil and the Art Encounters Biennial in Timisoara. He currently holds a four-year research fellowship at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna, where he leads a group of artists in an investigation of the concept of 'voice-over'. In 2022 he curated the Impakt Festival in Utrecht together with Florian Wüst.
