Mindaugas Gapševičius (b. 1974) is an artist, facilitator, and curator based in Berlin, Weimar, and Vilnius. Gapševičius earned his MA at the Vilnius Academy of Arts in 1999 and his MPhil at the Goldsmiths University London in 2016. Since 2016, he has been continuing his research at the PhD level at Bauhaus University, Weimar, where he holds an artistic associate chair.

Mindaugas Gapševičius was an active participant in the international new media art networks, which stimulated the formation of networks between Western countries and Baltic States in the last decade of the 20th century. He is among the initiators of the first Lithuanian new media art platform on the net, Institutio Media, founded in 1998, the pan-European network for emerging artists, the Migrating Art Academies, founded in 2008, and the DIYbio network of Nordic countries, founded in 2017. His artworks question the creativity of machines and do not presume humans to be the only creative force at work.
