Bernhard Zünkeler studied jurisprudence and graduated as a Doctor of Jurisprudence with a work on the European free movement of workers. For more than ten years, he worked as a lawyer and focused on restructuring processes in international companies. In 2009, he was co-founder of the artlab21 Research Institute, from whose work the art laboratory ESMoA in Los Angeles emerged in 2012. ESMoA is an urban intervention project, in which the various dimensions of art are investigated. As an Orange Council Partner, he is primarily involved in the integration of art thinking into business processes and the implementation of unconventional approaches to solutions.
