David Weber-Krebs (BE/D) is an artist and a researcher based in Brussels and Ghent. He studied at the University of Fribourg (CH) and the Amsterdam School of the Arts (NL).

Recent works in the field of the visual arts are the installations Immersion (2014) and The Earthly Paradise (2017).
David is the curator of the series of performative conferences On Enclosed Spaces and the Great Outdoors (with Jeroen Peeters) in which they address this question: how are the arts (its questions, forms, research and discourses) challenged by climate change?
He is the initiator and editor of the book and then the doors opened again (Onomatopee) in which 75 authors imagine their first theatre visit after the 2020 COVID-19 lockdown.
David collaborates on a regular basis with different artists and theorists and he teaches at different visual arts and performance academies. He is regularly leading projects and mentoring at different visual arts and performing arts schools, among others, Das Graduate school, the Dutch Art Institute (DAI) and at the Performance department of KASK/School of Arts.
