Bio:


  • ISEA2015

    Gerald Nestleris an artist and writer with a critical focus on what he terms the “derivative condition” of contemporary social relations and life, in which financial narratives shape the present by preconfiguring the future. At the same time, he works and collaborates on “aesthetics of resolution” as potential counter-strategies. Nestler graduated from the Academy of fine arts Vienna, Austria (1992) and subsequently conducted artistic fieldwork as broker and trader. He has exhibited internationally since the late 1990s and received the Austrian state scholarship for visual art (2003). Selected publications: Yx (on finance as a field of artistic research, Schlebruegge.Editor, Vienna, 2007), Kunstforum International  issues 200/201 on art and economy (with D. Buchhart, 2010), Making of Finance (with A. Avanessian, Merve publishers, Berlin, 2015). He is a PhD candidate at the Centre for Research Architecture, Goldsmiths University of London, UK.
