HUBERT LOBNIG
Artist
HUBERT LOBNIG - the Austrian artist based in Vienna and Mödring - focuses on painting, drawing, video, photography, and installations in public spaces. Many of his site-specific and process-oriented public art projects were conceived and directed in collaboration with Iris Andraschek. Iris Andraschek and Hubert Lobnig are concerned with the European border regime and its shifts as well as people’s precarious experiences with new borders that are suddenly erected. As a consequence of this they engage with the special aesthetics and architecture of former border posts and created a temporary open air installation at the border crossing point between Austria and the Czech Republic under the title where have the borders gone?
