Gerald Nestler is an artist and writer who combines theory and post-disciplinary conversation with video, installation, performance, text, code, graphics, sound, and speech. He explores what he calls the “derivative condition” of contemporary relations and its paradigmatic financial models, operations, processes, narratives, and fictions. He is a member of the Technopolitics Research Group, Vienna, and the Volatility Research Group, New York. Nestler holds a practice-based PhD from the Centre for Research Architecture at Goldsmiths, University of London and has shown his work internationally and has received, among other grants and awards, the Austrian State Grant for Visual Arts (2003), Austrian AIR grants for Beijing (2008), and New York/ISCP (2016).
