About the Artist
Lukas is an artist. A storyteller. A conservator. And publisher.
His multi-disciplinary projects have been turned into films, chronicles, online archives, books, and exhibitions. A large part of Lukas’ work deals with archival material he collects through travel or while delving into his own background. His narratives tackle recorded history by creating alternate storylines and fictional elements, alongside commonly accepted facts. Lukas often researches his imagery through explorations into cultures that have been affected by conflict. His created ‘archival artworks’ have little to do with institutional processes but rather center around personal stories, the desire to preserve their place in history, and Lukas’ own emotional attachment to them.
About the Publisher
