CV Thomas J. Jelinek:

Born in Stockholm. Stage director, dramaturge, curator, multidisciplinary artist. Created various video and space installations, music/performances and has worked in television productions, architectural projects and as a curator. In this context he realized a number of east-west connecting transdisciplinary art projects. One focus of his artistic work is on space and perception, resulting in installations of contextual spaces and conceptional communication scopes. Thus interventions in public space and production of discourse zones as theatrical processes as well as stage-rooms and light concepts for theatre and art spaces are part of his practical work. In this context he also realized a number of stage-spaces and light concepts for theatre, dance-projects and performance.

As a stage director he has realized various performance, opera and theatre projects in public and theatrical areas in Austria, Germany, Switzerland, the Netherlands and France and has worked as a dramaturge for various dance productions. He was joint founder and leader of MESSING network. From 2000-2008 he was chairman of IG Kultur Vienna (association of independent artists and cultural organisations/Vienna), founder of NOMAD theatre (2000) and the LABfactory (2003 in Vienna), where he is artistic director. He is Co-Founder and member of Liquid Loft. He has been teaching in specific transdisciplinary settings as for example as guest professor at Willem de Kooning Academy (Rotterdam/NL), in 2006/2007.
