Jan Georg Glöckner studied Visual Communication, Fine Art and Media Art at the Kunsthochschule Kassel, Estonian Art Academy Tallinn and Bauhaus-University Weimar.

Interchanging media and perspectives is a vital exercise in his practice and the underlying principle to keep up static curiosity which drives his research. The outcome of his endeavours in interrelationship between art, biotechnology and design are often site-specific installations, live-radio experiments, books or happenings. Since the last two years he focuses on human-fungi relations in artificial life-support-systems. Currently he holds the Art-Science-Economy grant of the County NorthRhineWestphalia, Germany.
