Harlan Levey arrived in Europe in 1996 with the ambition of becoming a professional football player. This did not work out. Fortunately, while on trial in Limburg, he was hired to teach comparative American Literature at the University of Maastricht and offered the chance to continue his studies. He earned an MA in Science, Technology and Society studies before moving to Brussels.
In Brussels, he originally worked as a meta-marketing manager for popular trading card and role-playing game brands, before co-founding a company called Myco-Labs and eventually returning to academics as a research fellow at the International Forum for Bio-Philosophy (IFB at KU Leuven) where he advised on ethical dilemmas in EC funded science research. Parallel to this position, he enrolled as a PhD candidate in Media Aesthetics at the European Graduate School. He left the IFB in 2004 and became the Editor in Chief and later Creative Director of Modart Magazine. In 2011, he opened his own gallery space in Brussels (Harlan Levey Projects). In conjunction with the activities of the gallery, Harlan gives lectures, maintains his own writing practice, works as an external expert for the European Commission, and is leading a 4 year public art project for the city and region of Brussels.
