Dirk Sorge works as artist and art educator in Berlin and Leipzig. He studied Visual Art at University of the Arts Berlin (Meisterschüler/MFA) and Culture and Technology Studies (B.A.) and Philosophy (M.A.) at Technical University Berlin.

In his arts practice, Dirk inquires how technological artefacts and digital media shape the way we perceive ourselves and our surrounding.

His works include videos, computer programs and mixed media installations. They reveal and deconstruct the aesthetics of pop culture, science and science-fiction and raise the question how the distinction between animated and inanimate objects is drawn.

His works were shown in exhibitions in Seoul, Jerusalem, Barcelona, and several German cities. Dirk also conducts workshops and guided tours focusing on inclusive practice for Museum der Bildenden Künste Leipzig, Staatliche Museen Berlin, Berlinische Galerie, the Berlin Biennale and other institutions.

From 2014-2016 he worked as project team member and moderator for Neue Perspektiven Gewinnen, a series of workshops in the field of inclusion in Berlin’s museums.

The participation of the Dirk Sorge in Meeting Place 2018 is supported by the Goethe-Institut.
