Simon Denny

Simon Denny (*1982 Auckland/New Zealand, lives in Berlin) is an artist whose work explores the cultures and values behind contemporary technologies. In recent years, Denny has looked at the exploitation of information in data-economies, using his work to visualise systems of competing political and economic visions, interrelationships of labour, capital, developments in technologies, and impacts on the biosphere. He studied at the University of Auckland (2005), and the Städelschule, Frankfurt am Main (2009). Denny co-founded the BPA//Berlin Program for Artists, an artist mentoring program, in 2016. Since 2018, he is a professor for Time Based Media at the HFBK, Hamburg.
