Benjamin Gerdes

Benjamin Gerdes is an artist, writer and organizer who works with video, film and related public formats. He is interested in the intersections between radical politics, knowledge production and popular cultural ideas. His work focuses on the affective and social consequences of economic and state regimes, and examines methods for art and cultural projects to contribute to social change. Benjamin Gerde’s projects arise through the articulation of long-term research processes that are carried out in dialogue with activists, trade unions, architects, urban planners, geographers and archival researchers.
