Daniel Jacoby

Daniel Jacoby makes abstract narrations using videos, texts, publications, performances and various other formats. They draw together a whole series of scientific curiosities, anecdotes and references that often intertwine, but always with an element of uncertainty. Collaborating with creators and professionals from other disciplines is a crucial part of his work. He has released artist's books with publishers such as Save As... Publications, Cru and soon with Mousse Publishing and Casino Luxembourg.

Daniel is co-editor of Texto, an artist-run book and web project dedicated to artist writings.

Daniel is co-founder of Cháchara, a series of informal talks that take place in different locations.
