Erik Bünger is an artist, writer and composer, whose work investigates the relationship between language and concepts such as ‘voice’, ‘body’, ‘image’ and ‘nature’. 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 reality is built up. His work has been presented around the world in venues such as Centre Pompidou in Paris, The Wellcome Collection in London, The Lincoln Center in New York, KW in Berlin, The Art Encounters Biennial in Timisoara and The Curitiba Biennial in Brazil. He currently holds a four-year research fellowship at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna, where he leads a team of researchers in an investigation of the concept of ‘voice-over’.
