Bio

Benjamin T. Busch (*1987, Kansas City) was internationally trained as an architect at the University of Kansas, the University of Applied Sciences Potsdam, and the University of Stuttgart before studying fine art at Weissensee School of Art. Treating architecture as a symptom of abstract processes, Busch’s artwork and writing investigate complex fields of relations within the built environment. His research explores spatial practice through processes of urbanization, self-organization, and the everyday in relation to infrastructures of planetary-scale computation. Since spring 2018, Busch co-directs The Institute for Endotic Research at the non-profit venue TIER.space together with Lorenzo Sandoval. He continues to work as an architect at F101 Architekten, documentary photographer with dokugram, and independent translator of art and architecture texts (German to English). Busch has self-published two photo books and published original work with ArtSlant, Avant.org, Berlin Art Link, Failed Architecture, OnCurating.org, Reflektor M, Uncube, and more. He has had solo exhibitions in Berlin and Munich and participated in group shows in Paris, Bergen, Quito, Athens, Middlesbrough, and elsewhere.
