Hans Gindlesberger is a visual artist whose practice works conceptually with a broad range of photographic traditions and photo-adjacent processes in seeking to expand the definition of the medium itself. His current research and studio work focuses on the often overlooked materiality of the image by replicating and translating photographic objects through tactile processes more commonly associated with sculpture, drawing, glass casting, and printmaking. His projects are often anchored in geographies that alternate between real and simulated spaces.
Gindlesberger’s work has been shown in over 150 exhibitions, festivals, and screenings including, Galleri Image (Århus, Denmark), Gallery 44 (Toronto, Canada), Miami University Art Museum (Oxford, OH), University of the Arts (Philadelphia, PA), Mt. Rokko Int’l Photo Festival (Kobe, Japan), the Voies Off Festival (Arles, France), DongGang Int’l Photo Festival (Yeongwol, Korea), #PostFuture Athens Digital Arts Festival (Athens, Greece), Rust Belt Biennial (Wilkes-Barre, PA), FILE Media Art (São Paulo, Brazil), and the Medium Festival of Photography (San Diego, CA). He has been invited to lecture at venues including FIF_BH (Belo Horizonte, Brazil), Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts (London, UK), The University of Edinburgh (Edinburgh, Scotland) and numerous institutions throughout the US. Gindlesberger’s work has received support from the Mary L. Nohl Foundation, Light Work, and the New York Foundation for the Arts, among others.
Currently, he heads the Photography program in the Department of Art and Design at Binghamton University in upstate New York. In 2022, he will be in residence as a Fulbright scholar at Chung-Ang University in Seoul, home of Korea’s pioneering photography and new media program.
