Peter Weibel - Mein Leben

Peter Weibel - My Life

 
Perceived as encyclopaedist, multi-talent and generator of ideas: Peter Weibel is artist, curator and scientist. Numerous writings, lectures and his art works have made him one of the most famous and widely acknowledged media artists and theorists. Marco Wilms accompanied Weibel to his childhood home in Austria, followed him to Paris, to Rome, Vienna and finally to his current place of activity, the ZKM Karlsruhe. Some of Weibel’s companions, among them Bazon Brock, Boris Groys, Bruno Latour, Olafur Eliasson and Peter Sloterdijk, also give voice to their perception of this all-rounder.
