Peter Schreiner, born 1980, studied history at the University of Vienna and photography at the Muthesius Academy of Fine Arts Kiel. Questions about the relationship between event and interpretation, between historiography and poetry are at the center of his artistic research work. He is interested in the event itself, which is only given historical meaning through its transfer into the medium of language and through its embedding in a narrative context. Reproductive processes such as photography, video and text are used, whose traditional attachment to a given, clearly definable reality is becoming increasingly detached. He is a member of the Galerie Fotohof and lives in Vienna and Salzburg.
