Kora Jünger lives near Berlin in a nature park and has 2 brilliant kids. She shares life and work with Frank Deimel, a passionate and gifted luthier for electric guitars. Art and music is their life. Since 2016 they collaborate on artist editions of guitars and basses that have a social relevant focus, a genre that has so far only rarely been touched. Rather than solely showing art work in a „white cube“, these guitars and basses are meant to play on, to create new sounds and music and to be seen by infinite multiplication in our social media stream. Please contact me directly if you have any further questions or if you are interested in showing and/or buying my art work or guitars! Thank you!
