Johannes Grenzfurthner is an award-winning artist and a filmmaker, writer, performer, and researcher. He’s the founder and artistic director of monochrom, an art and theory group and film-production company that acts internationally. Since 2019 he is editor-in-chief of the magazine The Free Lunch. Boing Boing referred to Grenzfurthner as leitnerd, a wordplay that ironically hints at his role in nerd, hacker, and art culture.

He’s head of the Arse Elektronika sex and tech festival and the Hedonistika food-tech festival, and he’s the host of Roboexotica, the festival for cocktail robotics.
