Christian Lölkes (*1990, White Plains, New York) is a German-American hacker and artist. While studying electrical engineering at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, he worked as an artist, consultant, engineer and curator at the ZKM Centre for Art and Media in Karlsruhe, Germany. His major projects there were the exhibition series ‘Open Codes’ and ‘Renaissance 3.0’. His focus is on the shared creative process and toolkit of engineers, hackers, scientists and artists. Lölkes works on improving and explaining technology with art, rather than creating art with technology, and wants to explore art from the perspective of an engineer and scientist. At Entropia e.V. – the Chaos Computer Club Karlsruhe – he hacks at the interfaces of code, society and art. He lives and works in Frankfurt, Germany.
