Werdegang / Ausbildung: 
Yelta Köm is an artist and researcher who incorporated architecture, artistic and spatial practices, and curatorial approaches to discuss social and political issues. His work is mainly influenced by the perception of the environment, the image of the city, neoliberal transformations, the tension between nature and technology and collective movements. In his practice, the right to the city, the right to the commons are evident. Köm’s methodology and mediums demonstrate the diversity of each project, and collaboration with others is a vital part of it. Architectural technology, mapping systems, literal and cinematographic storytelling as well as questioning representation techniques are core components of his work.
