Lukas Feireiss

With a background in philosophy and cultural studies Lukas Feireiss runs the interdisciplinary creative practice Studio Lukas Feireiss, focused on the discussion and mediation of architecture, art and visual culture in the urban realm. In his artistic, curatorial, editorial and consultive work he aims at the critical cut-up and playful re-evaluation of creative and spatial production modes and their diverse socio-cultural and medial conditions. Studio Lukas Feireiss provides overall conceptual development, design and implementation for diverse formats of knowledge dissemination and visual communication – such as exhibitions, publications, symposiums and other events – that cultivate contemporary cultural reflexivity. It thereby aims to find individualized narrative solutions for the translation of specific cultural inquiries into a wider societal discourse. Lukas Feireiss is author and editor of numerous books, and curator of manifold exhibitions. He has lectured and taught at various universities worldwide including the Visual Arts Program at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Urban-Think Tank at ETH Swiss Institute of Technology, Social Design at Vienna University of Applied Arts, Space and Design Strategies at University of Arts Linz, and the DesignLab at Rietveld Academy Amsterdam.
