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 and their forms of representation and narration. Within an essayistic form he explores

readings, doubts and possible future images. Thereby he tries to examine a world by 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.
