Biography

Environmentalist, artist, and activist Tue Greenfort’s interdisciplinary practice is both direct action and social critique. It has taken the form of traveling around Germany in a bus fueled by vegetable oil, taking pictures of the sun using a camera powered by photosynthesis-generated energy, and helping art institutions lower their energy costs. Influenced by the work of Dan Peterman, he believes art is an ethical place to enact recycling and to criticize corporate marketing practices. “Art has the ability to elaborate and open up discourses without being labeled and categorized as this or that political faction,” he says.
