Christian Bök

Christian Bök (born 1966) is the author of Eunoia (2001), a globally renowned bestseller, which has won Griffin Prize for Poetic Excellence.

Bök is currently working on The Xenotext — a project that requires him to encipher a poem into the genome of a bacterium capable of thriving in unsurvivable environments, lethal to most life on Earth.

Bök has exhibited his artworks at dozens of galleries around the world, including the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver, The Power Plant in Toronto, and the Marianne Boesky Gallery in New York. Bök is a Fellow in the Royal Society of Canada, and he now works, full time, as an artist at his studio in Melbourne.
