Mike Dimpfl

Artist

Mike Dimpfl is a teacher, academic, costume builder, and DJ. As a teacher, he is interested in using writing to better understand the boundaries of critical thought. His academic work explores the connection between hygiene, bureaucracy, and institutional racism, particularly in the southern US. Mike’s costumes often focus on the comic and confusing relationship human beings have to their garbage and to the possibility of the divine, with particular attention to the banal violence of modern consumption. When music is his focus, he is especially committed to reckless abandon on the dancefloor.
