KILIAN JÖRG works at the multimedial interfaces between philosophy and art. For this purpose he employs the expression of text as well as those of installation, performance, and music. He is primarily interested in the effects (and narratives) of our ecological dilemma and how its transformative forces can best be thought of and used aesthetico-politically. He operates mainly in Vienna, Berlin, and Brussels and is the founder of the performance philosophy collective philosophy unbound and a member of the performative research cluster Stoffwechsel - Ecologies ofCollaboration and the artist initiative im_flieger. His artistic projects include, among others, a speculative religion of waste (Toxic Temple) and performative interventions in the fossil based life-forms of urban public space (Diverting the Public Space). He has published books about Clubculture (Die Clubmaschine), the political Backlash from an ecological point of view, workingconditions and utopias in the art world and other topics.
Currently he is working as a post-doc at the SFB Affective Socities at FU Berlin. In his research project "On the Utopia of the Car-Free World", he attempts to reflect on our material & toxic entanglements with the anthropogenically altered matter of the Anthropocene through a focus on the car.
