A visual artist and a journalist from Breda. He takes up primarily the issue of exclusion from culture and is known for engaging people from the margins of society. In Wrocław he was involved in the project “How to Try to Act as if there Was a Future?” which gathered Roma community on Kamieńskiego Street and local activists. The aim of the project was to study possibilities of fully fledged participation in social and cultural life of all of the city’s inhabitants.  The actions, summarised at Łokietka 5 – Infopoint Nadodrze, were included into the Burger’s series “The Future Works” (earlier actions under this banner took place in Boxmeer, Breda and Moengo), investigating the perception of social problems in various European cities.
