Jonas Lund is interested in the power dynamics framing the increasing digitalisation of contemporary culture. Working across painting, sculpture, photography, digital environments and performance, he builds systems that examine conditions of labor, agency, and authorship within automated collaborative processes. Lund engages with emergent AI models as a co-creator within his narrative worlds, provocatively blurring the line between human and machinic intelligence. Within his multilayered projects, the artist speculates on how this entwined relationship might play out within both the art market and broader social-financial systems.
Born in Linköping, Sweden, and currently based between Amsterdam and Berlin, Jonas Lund (b. 1984) earned his MA at Piet Zwart Institute, Rotterdam (2013) and his BFA at Gerrit Rietveld Academy, Amsterdam (2009).
