What is a combustion? Chemistry class in Esperanto at the Warsaw University of Technology 2007.

Daniel Salomon is a French-Danish artist based in Berlin. His projects often include performative, site specific or participatory aspects, focusing on language, economy, utopia, cultural identity and universalism. Daniel has worked extensively with the constructed language Esperanto, which he has used as a paradigm to imagine a utopian –sometime dystopian– truly global culture. In the last years he has focussed on food as a starting point to reflect upon the different meanings of the word culture.

Daniel has been award fellowships at Art Channel Residency in Beijing, The Danish Institute in Rome, Capacete entretenimentos in Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo, Art Center College of Design in LA, ARCUS Project in Japan, Cité des Arts in Paris, A-I-R laboratory in Warszawa, Akademie Schloss Solitude in Stuttgart and NIFCA in Helsinki.

Daniel has studied Visuals Arts in Bourges, Copenhagen and Frankfurt. He currently lives and works in Berlin.
