About the artist

Kai Lossgott is a writer, film-maker, visual and performance artist. Kai questions personal and environmental health through a broad range inter-disciplinary practices. Everything is for him a matter of expressing human agency within the socio- ecological crisis. Waste in Kai’s work has its own agency and is as much a metaphor as a physical phenomenon. His videos are screened on local street corners, at international museum and gallery events, as well as film festivals. Kai is also known for his public performance collaborations and curating moving image.

His work has been shown at the Dak’art Biennale, Dakar; Centre Pompidou, Paris; Institute of Contemporary Art, Zagreb; Johannesburg Art Gallery and Museum Africa, Johannesburg; Arnot Art Museum, New York; Whitechapel Gallery, London.
