About the artist
Tom Vau was born 1981 in Austria and lives there.
In Tom Vau’s artistic productions and interventions fixed social, geographical, political and economic rigidities are scrutinized, manipulated and finally modified to question the status quo and at the same time to improve the existing situation. The central method of the work is the research and the analysis of local circumstances (social, spatial, natural level) and to deal with projects from these conditions through artistic means. Thereby, Tom Vau is dealing with current issues in our global society, existing areas of tensions, conflicts and social disharmonies. His interests lie in the interplay of different socio-cultural processes ,network creativity, resource policies, global economics, immigration and spatial issues.
