Stefan Doepner (DE/SI, 1966) is one of the founders of the f18institut (1996). He has been working and living in Ljubljana, Slovenia since 2004. Doepner's focus lies on the artistic exploration of today's use, reception and rules of technology. He believes it is necessary to deconstruct and rebuild contemporary systems and the techniques that mark our daily life with ourown individual means and in our own way. His reinventions take the shape of building his own technological tools, as well of building/constructing poetic situations in which our daily routine, a type of machinery, is interrupted. Doepner / f18 institut has collaborated with many artists as well as art institutions and presented work at galleries and festivals worldwide (Synthetic Times, Being; Ars Electronica Festival, Linz / Kapelica Gallery as Featured Art Scene; Shift Festival, Basel).
