Binder’s activities are switching from the creative work of a person to the collaborative form of work of a group with changing members, the Kunst-fu. His interest is rooted in visual appearances of subculture. The projects he manages are using many forms of media and ways of expression; from video to photographs, to wall drawings, and ultimately to installations. The world he represents has endless forms, in which every form of existence has a meaning. In this scene the children and animals’ way of thinking is used as a source of inspiration, or it could even be understood as the artist’s philosophy.
As an art activist he shows us how to react to society; Creativity is the only possibility to get a way out of the reality of chaos and reach a kind of personal enlightenment, which we call art.
