Toni Kleinlercher

*1958 in Schwaz /Austria. Currently living and working in Vienna.

Studied maths and geography. Works as an experimental writer and multimedia artist. With Kleinlercher the nature question is transformed into a Wittgensteinian language problem, which the artist, as a so-called observer of the second order, imports into the white cube of the art system. In the context of selected 'landscapes', Kleinlercher develops observational arrangements in order to start operations of 'reflexive communication'.
