Klimek:

Sebastian Meissner works as a media artist using sound, video and photography. Employing multiple artistic personas (Autokontrast, Autopoieses, Bizz Circuits, Klimek, Open Source, Random Industries, Random_Inc), his works negotiate urban/cultural/social scenarios, randomness, historical music archives and strategies of networking. He works with computer music sources, sampling and moving photography - assembling their interrelation within geographic/historical/political discourses.

Over the years Meissner's works have been widely presented at festivals and by institutions such as Transmediale (D), Podewil (D), Portikus (D), Schirn Kunsthalle (D), Festival for Jewish Culture (PL), Goethe Institute Buenos Aires (AR), Goethe Institute Ramallah (PAL), Goethe Institute Almaty (KZ), Sonar (ES), Mutek (CA), OK Centrum (A), Hazira Performance Center Jerusalem (IL), Kulturhuset Stockholm(S) and Forsythe Ballet (D).

Meissner studied Education, Sociology, Psychology and American Cultural Studies at the Johann Wolfgang von Goethe University in Frankfurt/Main (D). In recent years he has participated in workshops, seminars and lectures for Barents Spektakel, Kirkenes (NO), Goethe Institute Ramallah (PAL), DJ-School Of Contemporary Music, Tel Aviv (IL), Internationale Sommerakademie, Mousonturm Frankfurt (D) and International School of New Media, Luebeck (D).
