Max Lange (*1988) is an audio-visual artist, music producer and meme archeologist. He has studied Media Art at the University of Art & Design in Karlsruhe.
He has released music on various labels including Marionette and SVS records and has composed and performed spatial compositions for the 4D spatial sound system and for the Klangdom at ZKM.
Lately his focus has shifted to research using the internet as an open archive to explore sociocultural and philosophical subject matters through memetic archeology encompassing all forms of digital media.

The genealogy of the ideas that underlay human culture, is as much a focus, as the memetic, i.e. semantic systems that have enabled the transmission and evolution of those ideas through time.
