Soren Thilo Funder (Denmark 1979) lives and Works in Copenhagen. Graduate from The Danish Royal Academy of Fine Arts and The University of Illinois at Chicago – Art and Architecture.

He creates visual communiqués dissecting and revealing the invisibles of urban society, using the fictional and extra-real to pose new questions and generate a new potential space, a third place, for political contemplations and counter-memory. Funders' works deal with diverse cultural fields and integrate aspects of critical theory, sociology, psychoanalysis, art theory, history, literature, metaphysics, theater, cinema, Sci-Fi, Horror, political activism and various counter-cultural disciplines. The works are formal investigations of the power relations of modern day society. Through the use of cinematic narratives, choreography and mise en scène, the works strive to expose the precariousness of contemporary society and the broken link between politics and the political. In the works the nostalgic is juxtaposed with the current and unpredictable lifeworld of the political subject, often moving beyond the mere present and into the yet-to-come or the parallel now.

Wasteland (Food Court) (2007) The Wasteland Series are cinematic reconstructions of specific public and semi-public spaces. Rearranging and reorchestrating the physical surroundings a fiction is created and again injected into the public/semi-public spaces. In Wasteland (Food Court) the food court area of a major shopping mall in Reykjavik, Iceland, is depicted as a massive disaster site - the aftermath of some unknown disastrous event.

Wasteland (Bulldog) (2007) In Wasteland (bulldog) a bookstore is depicted in a chaotic smokefilled atmosphere, the only live present an American Bulldog roaming solemnly around amongst the heaps of books. COMMISIONED by Arnold Busck International Art Book Store COURTESY of the Artist

Friedlos (aka The Bandit Wolf-Man) (2009) On the outskirts of the city, the townsfolk are gathered to expel the citizen and bandit Friedlos, performing the traditional heathen ritual of banishment. Modern society’s regression towards rhetoric’s and ethics analogous to those of the Wild West, witch hunts and tribal community, is on display in the banishment of the bandit. COURTESY of the Artist
