Gerald Zahn


Gerald Zahn was born in 1971 in Bruck an der Mur / Austria. He graduated from the University of Vienna with a degree in Pedagogic, Ethnology and Science of Communication and also holds a diploma in Multimedia design. He works in Vienna as a media and video artist. In addition, he has long been working in services and care for persons with learning disabilities or a mental illness. In his artistic projects he explores the phenomena of contemporary life and the methods of pop culture. His work integrates different media and is often presented in a form of abstract collections, which focus on the detection of hidden, but prevalent standards. For several years now he has been exploring narrative-deconstructing film techniques of using static photography rather than conventional film footage or letting the story unfold in a single take.
