Biography

nielsbonde
I am an early proponent of digital art in Denmark, exhibiting new media works – digital media installations and video. My works explore what electronic and in particular digital media means to our culture and shapes us. My art is about control, surveillance, voyeurism, exhibitionism and paranoia, and how these topics have become core elements in our society rather than kinky fringe phenomenas. The ideas amalgamate in theories on images as currency, describing how they have become increasingly dominant in post-internet and -smartphone communication and what this new role means, and how the screen has become a defining reference in our understanding of the world.

Through the 1990’s, I have been showing installations in museums and galleries counting Statens Museum for Kunst [DK], MIT List Visual Arts Center, ZKM Karlsruhe, Stedelijk Museum, PS1 MoMa New York, Pinacoteca do Estato de Sao Paolo, Heart [DK], ARoS [DK], Academy of Fine Arts Hanoi Vietnam, Contemporary Art Centre Vilnius Lithuania, Malmö Kunstmuseum and Deutsche Hygiene Museum Dresden.

I studied at The Royal Academy of Fine Arts Copenhagen and at Institut für Neue Medien at Städelschule Frankfurt.

Assistant professor at Malmö Art Academy Sweden from 1999 till 2005 and at Kunsthøjskolen in Holbæk Denmark from 2010 till 2016, and taught at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen, Denmark. I am currently a PhD fellow at Universität für Angewandte Kunst in Vienna.

I live and work in Copenhagen, Denmark and Borrby, Sweden.
