FRANZ WASSERMANN, born in 1963, lives and works as a sculptor in Vienna. He is concerned with structures of power in our society and explores the coming and going of power and powerlessness that influences the individual as well as the collective.

His performances and sculptures deal with tabooed issues like for example sexual abuse of children (SCARS), National Socialism and culture of remembrance (TEMPORARY MONUMENT), Aids and stigma (BARBIE+KEN=HIV+), migration (ADMINISTRATIVE DETENTION OF ASYLUM SEEKERS), authority and symbolic capital in the cultural sector (ALBERTINA, ICONS), globalization (HELDENPLATZ) and the power of the media and the image (ACTION CARRIERS, ME MYSELF AND I).
