.."you have the whole world of online art, online production methods, the community, which felt very empowering. You can start your day with the simple idea of making something and then, at the end of the day, everyone can see it. That seemed much more engaging to me, opening new possibilities." -Jonas Lund for SCHIRN MAG

Jonas Lund creates paintings, sculptures, photography, websites and performances that critically reflect contemporary networked systems and power structures of control. His artistic practice involves creating systems and setting up parameters that oftentimes require engagement from the viewer. This results in performative artworks where tasks are executed according to algorithms or a set of rules. Through his works, Lund investigates the latest issues generated by the increasing digitalisation of contemporary society like authorship, participation and distribution of agency. At the same time, he questions the mechanisms of the art world; he challenges the production process, authoritative power and art market practices.
