Vincent Van Uffelen works with thoughts, computation, simple electronics, and everyday materials. He investigates how the making and utilization of artifacts can be used to learn about alternative ways to access and interfere with the constantly changing entanglement of natural, technological, sociological, and cultural systems. Believing in a world of both/and he oscillates between revealing practices, such as open experiments that welcome the unexpected, and the creation of enframing tools and techniques that act as enabling constraints for thoughts and actions. His work, he hopes, generates small chances to learn more about the nature of the bridges spanning over the liminal space between now and future’s adjacent next.

While his playful explorations of the knowable and experienceable can take the form of installations he focusses mainly on performances, workshops, and interventions, using their performative nature for further enquiry into collaboration, co-creation, and collective learning.

He has exhibited, performed, presented, or held his collaborative and solo work in Austria, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Slovakia, and the United Kingdom.


He is active member of the working group 21st Century Art and Digital Culture of the Koalition der Freien Szene which aims to strengthen the Berlin based community of artists, designers, scientists, and activists that critically engage with technology and its effect on nature, society, and culture.

Between 2009 and 2011 he co-directed TINT Arts, a local artists-led organisation fostering media arts in London.
