Pascal Marcel Dreier

Pascal Marcel Dreier, born in 1995 near Stuttgart, Germany, is a student of Media and Fine Arts (in the fields of media theory, sociology and transmedia art) at the Academy of Media Arts in Cologne, Germany, and the University of Applied Arts Vienna, Austria.
Using tools like scientific writing, virtual reality, ux-design and design systems as well as installation and sculpture, Pascal focuses on the creation of speculative narratives and theories to raise and connect questions of how structures of power and violence evolve, manifest and materialise – especially in human/non-human encounters.
