Philipp Lachenmann: DELPHI Rationale


Jan Bünnig

Art Award 2007 Nominee

Born in 1972 in Berlin, lives and works in Berlin.

Frequently combining found objects with fabricated materials, Jan Bünnig in his work aims to discover the unique in the everyday. The focus is not so much on the finished work but rather on the process, where the accidental and playful play an important role.
