Artist lecture series plus performances - Nikolaus Gansterer, Tao G. Vrhovec Sambolec, Brandon LaBelle and participants in the Nordic Sound Art Program
Contemporary art practice has come to occupy an increasingly expanded field, shifting understandings of the artist as a single cultural actor and opening up an extended collaborative and aesthetical platform. The autumn lecture series seeks to query this expanded territory, drawing on the work of invited international artists to enliven debate on art's role as a catalyst for reconfiguring social life.

Nikolaus Gansterer / "Drawing a Hypothesis"
As an artist, Nikolaus Gansterer is deeply interested in the links between drawing, thinking and action. In his visual work, he focuses on mapping processes emerging out of cultural and scientific networks, unfolding their immanent structures of interconnectedness. By rejecting a strict differentiation of these two areas, and through a consequent recombination of methods and settings from both fields, he arrives at distinct lines of connection and division, questioning the imaginary threshold between nature and culture, art and philosophy.

Gansterer studied art at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna and completed his post-academic studies at the Jan van Eyck Academie at Maastricht in The Netherlands. He is co-founder of the Institute for transacoustic Research and the Vienna Vegetable Orchestra. Currently he is lecturer at the Institute for Transmedia Art in the University of Applied Arts in Vienna. He is internationally active in performance and exhibitions.
