Gregor Göttfert MA
media and performance artist
born 1984 in Gmunden (Upper Austria)
lives and works in Attersee and Linz (Upper Austria)



After an apprenticeship as a engine fitter and a few years in the mechanical engineering sector, he studied at the University of Art in Linz from 2006 to 2018. There he completed the bachelor’s degree in time-based and interactive media, attended the interface cultures master’s program, and completed his master’s in time-based media.

In his work as a media artist, in which performative projects increasingly play a role in addition to interactive and installative works, usually dealing and playing with the idiosyncrasies and characteristics of analog and digital technologies as well as the deficiencies of the used media is a central element.

In addition to an aesthetic approach, there is often a strong conceptual component to Götferts work, sometimes a quasi media-archaeological examination of theoretical and technical backgrounds also plays an important role.

Beside his artistic work, he also works as a media technician, as a university lecturer as well as a freelance software and hardware developer.
