Biography:


Born 1974, living and working in Vienna, Austria.

He studied Transmedia Art at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna and completed his studies at the Jan van Eyck Academy at Maastricht in The Netherlands. He is co-founder of the Institute for Transacoustic Research. Since 2007 heis teaching at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna.

As an artist, performer, and researcher Nikolaus Gansterer is deeply interested in relational field  between drawing, thinking and action. In form of installations and performances he traces the translatability of phenomena of perception into an artistic environment. In his transmedial work, he focuses on mapping ephemeral and emergent processes unfolding their immanent structures of interconnectedness, questioning the imaginary threshold between nature and culture, art and philosophy.

Gansterer’s fascination with the complex character of diagrammatic figures has led to his book Drawing a Hypothesis on the ontology of shapes of visualizations and its use in contemporary art and science. From 2014 - 2018 Gansterer was leading the artistic research project Choreo-graphic Figures: Deviations from the Lines developing innovative systems of notation between the lines of drawing, writing and choreography. 2019-2022 Gansterer is heading the interdisciplinary research project Contingent Agencies on experimental mapping of atmospheres, situations and environments.
