J.G. Biberkopf

J. G. Biberkopf is an artist from Lithuania, based in Amsterdam. He works within the fields of sound, documentary, conceptual art and performance. Biberkopf's practice assembles influences stemming from sound studies, ecosophy, media and architectural theory. Anti-architectural, with the interplay of design and power as works central concerns, his work encourages to unthink and devise alternative genealogies of metaphysical and physical architectures. It encourages to reflect their interaction, narrativization, and influence on and within sociality. In the previous work, he worked with aural memes, exploring the semiotics of sound. Biberkopf has developed a sound practice, which at times has been described as sculptural, theatrical and cinematic. Biberkopf has presented works and collaborations at Barbican Centre (UK), Berghain (DE), Contemporary Art Centre Vilnius (LT), Haus Der Kunst Munich (DE), Head (CH), Liquid Architecture (AUS), Mutek Montreal (CA), Pompidou (FR), Rupert (LT), Sonic Acts (NL), Studium Generale Rietveld (NL), The Kitchen (US), Unsound (PL), Venice Biennale (IT). He was also a member of the curatorial teams of the Newman Festival (2015), and the Unthinkable Nomos research project and events series (2016), and he is currently finishing a Masters degree in Fine and Arts and Design at Sandberg Institute.
