“I have an incredible amount of fun working with other people and in doing so time and again surpass myself and obtain new perspectives.”

Eva Funk, artist-in-residence 2021/2022 & 2022/2023

Eva Funk, who was born in 1988 in Villach in Austria, lives and works in Berlin. She studied time-based media at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen and did a masters in object sculpture at the Berlin University of the Arts in 2016. More recently she has worked in cultural and aesthetic education and as a member of various interdisciplinary groups on collective strategies and visionary perspectives. The focus of her projects has been on the strengths of a united (urban) society, building culture and experience of urban nature. It is important to Eva Funk to think about design not only as an aesthetic decision, but to discover its political and democratic possibilities as well. At Lüdertal School in Großenlüder, the artist would like to work with students on the word “home”: a construction that for most people is a largely individual reality that is lived, experienced, suffered, missed, sought out and not least also designed.
