My research is based on interdisciplinary devices that raise questions about contemporary society, its contradictions and its heritage, with the aim of activating the participatory construction of new ecosystems through the artistic experience.

ABOUT

Greg Jager (1982) is a visual artist based in Rome.
With a background in 90’s subcultures, he enrolled in the three-year design course at IED – Istituto Europeo di Design on 2001, during which he started practicing art in abandoned spaces. His curiosity and interdisciplinary vision of him leads him to explore the connections between art and anthropology, through murals, drawings, editorial projects, installations and performances.
