In the artistic oeuvre of Tyrolian artist Martin Gostner, born 1957 in Innsbruck, it is the discourse with history and memories that is of foremost importance. It is not so much the facts that are of interest to him, but instead how the mechanisms of memory actually work.
Gostner became famous for his “bay windows” (Erker in German): fleeting works of art that are erected unannounced in the middle of nowhere. Gostner lives and works both in Innsbruck and in Düsseldorf, where he holds a professorship at the Academy of Fine Arts.
