Hans Weigand

July 5 – September 2, 2001

Hans Weigand’s artistic strategy is based on taking banal everyday phenomena and ways of living that are considered average, and humorously manipulating and continuing their language of forms. With his background in the world of pop, his way of dealing with the codes of the everyday show is both reflective and entertaining. The specific artistic technique he uses plays only a subordinate role in this, as he links photography and painting with video, music, performance or literature, and new fields of experimentation are constantly being added.


Hans Weigand, born in 1954, lives and works in Vienna.
