lives in: Berlin, Germany

Georg Leß was born 1981 in Arnsberg. In his work, wild creatures stroll beside unnamed figures and female horror movie directors. His love for the uncanny is communicated through an undefined terror that could take hold of you when you read about implantations, accidents and metamorphoses. Georg Leß lives in Berlin. In 2014 he received the GWK Promotion Prize for Literature and in 2016 he was awarded the Promotion Prize of the federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia for young artists.
