Michael Hoepfner
Visual Artist / Artista Visivo

Michael Höpfner (born in 1972 in Krems/Donau, Austria) studied painting and graphics at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna and Fine Art Photography at the Glasgow School of Art. He lives and works in Vienna. His work is based on the experience of walking journeys in desert and steppe areas between Eastern Europe and China, Ukraine, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Nepal, Tibet, China and South Korea. He reflects on these landscapes, the changing nomadic societies and his own performance in installations that use black and white photography, drawings, slide projections and tent sculptures.
