Sound and media artist. Born in Antwerp. Isjtar has a profound fascination for all things that underpin the mind, perception and reality. When not lost in fantasies of the systems that surround us, he translates this obsession into performances, installations and music tracks, with an ever critical reflection and a corresponding aesthetic. He is a core-member of OKNO (since 2006), Society of Algorithm, Code31, ATK!, and works with several other artists and collectives such as Jeroen Uyttendaele, Shelbatra Jashari, Masato Tsutsui, Machine Centered Humanz and so-on. In 2012 he co-founded Bad Bank. Lives in Brussels.
