Wolfgang Bittner [ AT ] arbeitet im Spannungsfeld zwischen bildender Kunst und neuen Medien. Dabei bilden Fragestellungen zum Verhältnis zwischen Mensch und Technologie, sowie visueller Wahrnehmung und Repräsentation einen konzeptuellen Rahmen. Im Prozess von Zergliederung und Neuordnung der konstituierenden Elemente eines Mediums entstehen neue Bezüge im Verhältnis zwischen Werk, Welt und Betrachter.

Präsentation von fotografischen Prints, Installationen und Videoarbeiten auf zahlreichen Ausstellungen und Festivals im In- und Ausland.

Studium in Experimentelle Gestaltung [ Kunstuniversität Linz / Mag. art 2006 ], Theater-, Film- und Medienwissenschaften [ Universität Wien ], Medieninformatik [ TU Wien ], ArtScience [ Royal Academy of Arts, Den Haag / MA 2009 ].
