Luksch & Patel
Born in Uk, 1970 and 1971
Manu Luksch & Mukul Patel are intermedia artists whose practice interrogates conceptions of progress through the devising of tools and frameworks and the instigation of processes, with a strong emphasis on research and dissemination. Recent works have addressed surveillance, corporate data harvesting, and the regulation of public space, and have been shown at ARoS Art Museum, Århus; Centre Pompidou, Paris; NTT-ICC, Tokyo; Eyebeam, New York.
Luksch focuses on the effects of emerging technologies on daily life, social relations, urban space and political structures specifically, the limits of permission and injunction, the thresholds and constraints of public space, and the traces of data that accumulate in digital networked societies.
