Dani Ploeger examines situations of conflict and crisis on the fringes of the world of high-tech consumerism. His objects, videos, and apps engage with the materiality of everyday technologies, and often question the sanitized, utopian marketing around innovation and its implications for local and global distributions of power. He has travelled to dump sites in Nigeria to collect electronic waste originating from Europe, stolen razor wire from the so-called ‘high-tech fence’ on the EU outer border in Hungary, documented electronic gadgets on the frontline of the Donbass War in Ukraine and interviewed witnesses of US drone attacks in Pakistan about technologies of violence and sound.

Dani holds a PhD in media studies and performance from the University of Sussex, UK, and is currently a Research Fellow at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in London, Fellow at V2_Lab for the unstable media in Rotterdam and Associate Research Fellow at De Montfort University in Leicester. He works between London, Berlin and Flushing, NL.
