Né à Kötschach-Mauthen (Austria).

Josef Dabernig (Austria, 1956) is a prime example of how artists use the moving image, both film and video, in ways that are both narrative and sculptural. His films are often black-and-white, evoking the insecure, ‘transitional’ reality of the post-communist countries closest to Austria (the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Poland, Slovenia, Croatia). Many of them obliquely comment on social structures that go beyond the inter-personal, and they may therefore be read as ‘illustrations’ or ‘allegories’ of Big Society, as it is reflected in the small (sometimes even obsessive) details of the everyday.
