Nikolaus Gansterer studied art at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna and completed his post-academic studies at the Jan van Eyck Academy at Maastricht in The Netherlands. He is cofounder of the Institute for transacoustic Research and the sound collective The Vegetable Orchestra. He is internationally active in performance and exhibitions.

Nikolaus Gansterer is an artist and researcher based at the Transmedia Art Institute, University of Applied Arts, Vienna, whose practice is deeply grounded in a trans-medial and trans-disciplinary approach, underpinned by conceptual discourse on visualization and cartographic representations. He has extensive experience of working on various collaborative projects, from thematic clusters to long-term longitudinal research projects.

Nikolaus Gansterer is deeply interested in the links between drawing, thinking and action. In his visual work, he focuses on mapping processes emerging out of cultural and scientific networks, unfolding their immanent structures of interconnectedness. By rejecting a strict differentiation of these two areas, and through a consequent recombination of methods and settings from both fields, he arrives at distinct lines of connection and division, questioning the imaginary threshold between nature and culture, art and philosophy.

Nikolaus Gansterer’s fascination with the complex character of figures has led to his book Drawing a Hypothesis (Springer Wien/New York, 2011) on the ontology of shapes of visualisations and on the development of the diagrammatic view and its use in contemporary art, science and theory.
