Johannes Gierlinger (*1985) studied Digital Media & Art in Salzburg, Istanbul and

at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. His films and installations deal with memory, history and

resistance as well with the forms of representation. Within an essayistic form he explores readings,

doubts and possible future images. Thereby he tries to examine a world by a flaneur-like act of

seeking and by creating connections through confrontation and scrutiny of images and words.

Gierlingers work has been screened and exhibited at various filmfestivals and institutions like

the Visions Du Réel Nyon, CPH:DOX, Edinburgh Int. Filmfestival, Belvedere21 Vienna,

Dokufest Prizren, Salzburger Kunstverein, Microscope Gallery NY, das weisse haus vienna,

Galerie Traklhaus, Diagonale Graz, mumok Kino amongst others. Lives an works in Vienna.
