KLAUS OBERMAIER (media artist, choreographer & composer, Vienna)
Interactive Space – New Tools, New Ideas
A large part of my work is based on the discovery, appropriation and development of new, mainly interactive tools. Learning new hardware and software and experimenting with setups and spatial implementation act as catalysts for artistic ideas and projects.
For more than two decades media-artist, director, choreographer and composer Klaus Obermaier has been creating innovative works with new media in performing arts, music and installations, highly acclaimed by critics and audience. His inter-media performances and artworks are shown at festivals and theaters throughout Europe, Asia, North and South America and Australia. Many of his projects, such as D.A.V.E, APPARITION, LE SACRE DU PRINTEMPS, DANCING HOUSE or EGO, are considered groundbreaking and genre-defining for the development of new artistic forms of human interaction with digital systems. Klaus Obermaier is visiting professor at the University IUAV of Venice/Italy and at Babes-Bolyai University in Cluj-Napoca/Romania, teaching interactive arts and performances. He taught as an adjunct professor for composition at the Webster University Vienna and held courses for choreography and new media at the Accademia Nazionale di Danza di Roma.
