Jakob Glasner is an Austrian born artist and designer, whose work focuses on social and political systems and their physical representation. After finishing his studies at the University for Applied Arts Vienna, he started creating a series of immersive performances and objects creating irritating variations of reality. Additionally he experiments with alternatives such as open or sustainable design, trying not only to critique reality but creating experiences with possible alternatives. His work has been exhibited internationally and was awarded with prizes like the design concepts award at the Austrian design prizes.
