In his artworks Michael Najjar deals in a complex and critical way with the technological developments that are defining and drastically changing the early 21st century. Najjar develops his photographic and video works from an interdisciplinary understanding of art. He combines science, art and technology to create artistic visions and utopias of future social orders emerging under the influence of new technologies. Throughout his extensive oeuvre Najjar continually questions the relationship between reality and simulation. His work has been shown for the past 25 years extensively in numerous international gallery and museum exhibitions as well as at biennials.
