Fabian Offert

I am currently a PhD candidate in Media Arts and Technology and a Fellow of the Regents of the University of California at the University of California, Santa Barbara.

I hold a Diploma in Theater Studies from the Institute for Applied Theater Studies in Gie├čen, Germany, where I was a student of Prof. Heiner Goebbels and a fellow of the German National Academic Foundation. I worked for a number of major cultural institutions like ZKM | Center for Art and Media and Goethe-Institut New York and as a freelance developer for international artists.

I am an advocate of a free (as in speech) and lean web. This is why this website runs on my own server and weighs ~450KB, excluding images. It is Let's Encrypt secured, contains no ads, no trackers, no CDNs, and is built upon a custom blogging framework that consists of ~150 lines of Python code, including templates.
