ABOUT STEFFEN KRÜGER //
Steffen Krüger, PhD in media and communication, MA in English lits. Steffen is a postdoctoral researcher and lecturer at the Department of Media and Communication, University of Oslo, Norway. He is interested in developing critical, psychosocial approaches to digital media. In his current research project, “Online Interaction Forms”, financed by the Norwegian Research Council (NFR), he analyses forms of online interaction, applying the method of “scenic understanding” (Lorenzer, 1970, 1986) to a variety of online platforms – discussion forums and social networking sites. Steffen is contributing editor of the journal American Imago – Psychoanalysis and the Human Sciences. His ventures into the art world have resulted in the project Metabolism (together with Tammo Rist, Oslo/Berlin), a selection of 90 x-ray images of trucks made at the Swedish-Norwegian border at Svinesund (www.metabolism.no).
