Paul Renner

Born in 1957 in Bregenz, Vorarlberg. His creative work is underpinned by the idea of art as synaesthetic perception. His approach, which focuses on the notion of the total work of art (Gesamtkunstwerk), is anarchic, subversive, and experimental. His exhibition projects culminate in theatrical soirées in which a broad spectrum of artistic genres is interfused with culinary culture. This is conceived of as a social act and results in temporary co-productions with other artists in collaboration with members of the public.

Renner lives in Austria and Italy.
