Peter Freund is an artist and educator based in the San Francisco Bay Area. He works with the moving image in single-channel and installation formats and more recently with conceptual digital printmaking. He has exhibited in the USA, Canada, Latin America, Europe, Russia, Asia, and the Middle East. His work is largely preoccupied with the element of fantasy that structures historical memory. Freund is Professor of Art at Saint Mary's College of California, where he teaches experimental media production and critical theory.

Currently on sabbatical, Freund is living in Barcelona, Spain with his wife and son. He has an artist residency with the Werner Thöni Artspace and a research residency with the Barcelona Contemporary Art Museum (MACBA). He is also a visiting artist with the Department of Visual Art at the University of Barcelona.
