Konrad Becker is a media researcher, activist, writer, actor, musician, composer and producer, and event organizer in the field of art and electronic media.
His career began in several fields simultaneously: while working on cross-genre installation environments as an artist in the late 1970s, he was involved as actor, musician, and filmmaker. These early multimedia installations, which Becker further expanded in the 1980s, included painting and graphics as well as slide projections, videos, and live performances.
Since the early 1990s, Becker has been pioneering works in the Internet and digital media while also working most of the time as a musician.
With the founding of t0-Institute for New Cultural Technologies (1993) and Public Netbase (1994), Becker initiated forums for dealing with network culture and cyberculture and later continued by establishing the World-Information.org platform.
