Erik Bünger’s work focuses on phenomena, which are generally assumed to lie beyond the realm of language, where concepts such as ‘voice’, ‘body’, ‘image’ and ‘nature’ make up zones of indeterminacy – simultaneously inside and outside language. In performance lectures, videos, texts, and musical compositions, he explores the way in which such concepts, by referring to something mute and unspeakable beyond the reach of the linguistic, become central voids around which our reality is built up.
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 the way in which 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 and The Curitiba Biennial in Brazil. In 2018, his debut book, ‘The Elephant Who Was a Rhinoceros’, was published on RpB Verlag (Cologne).
