About

As a trained art caster, drawer and performance artist with a degree from the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna (class: Heimo Zobernig) he acts on deconstructionist and surreal terrain. He perceives humans as producers of their culture and at the same time as a product of their culture. In the tense atmosphere of the media society Karl Karner stages the question of humanity and creates new nodal points for an irritating, distorted counterworld. Numerous national and international exhibitions since 2004 and publications since 1998.
