About the directors

Steffen Köhn is a filmmaker, anthropologist and video artist who uses ethnography to understand contemporary sociotechnical landscapes.

For his research-based video- and installation works he engages in local collaborations with digital workers, designers, fellow artists, software developers, or science fiction writers to explore viable alternatives to current distributions of technological access and arrangements of power.

His works have been shown at the Academy of the Arts Berlin, Kunsthaus Graz, Vienna Art Week, Hong Gah Museum Taipei, Lulea Biennial, and the ethnographic museums of Copenhagen and Dresden. His films have been screened (among others) at the Berlinale, Rotterdam International Film Festival, and the Word Film Festival Montreal.
