Aaron Kimmig (1989, DE/AT) is a digital artist and activist, working in a self-organized webdesign/programming since 2016. Before starting his studies in Post-Conceptual Art at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna
(2017) he did his bachelor degree in International Development at the Main University of Vienna. He focused on postcolonial studies, gender studies and critical whiteness. For his thesis he did research on how the refugee protest movement in Vienna used Social Media for organizing itself.

In his artwork he mainly deals with questions concerning technology as a
(societal) tool for both: repression and liberation. He also explores the algorithms behind biological processes and their digital implementations (swarm, artificial intelligence, human brain and creativity). In 2021 he won the “Different Worlds” prize for young contemporary art photography for his research project “Xinjiang – Sentinel2”, on the oppression of Uyghur minority in Xinjiang.
