Auzinger works in the fields of interactive installations, film and media art as well as in artistic research and scientific topics. In his projects, he deals with a wide range of contemporary issues and often refers to cultural history. He pursues interdisciplinary artistic approaches and usually realizes his projects interactively and participative.

In his installations, Auzinger focuses on the viewer and creates new approaches to allow the users to interactively complete his works, by both confronting the viewer with visually formulated questions and offering space for experimentation in a playful way.

For his residency, Auzinger will explore cultural and social aspects of the territory, letting the local scene shape his ideas.
