Johannes Bruder – Researcher

Johannes Bruder (*1983) is a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of Experimental Design and Media Cultures and the Critical Media Lab Basel.

His research targets infrastructures & technologies that support epistemologies & empiricisms in art, design, science and their (sub)cultural distortions. He is determined to find alternative modes of being faithful to experience in observing, sensing, representing and exhibiting. Former affiliations include the Graduate School of Social Sciences at the University of Lucerne, eikones at the University of Basel and the Department of Social Science, Health and Medicine at King’s College London.
