Who & Such

Michael Zeltner works on, in and with bottom-up, self-organised and decentralised structures and ideas while occasionally starting the odd unfinished art project. As a school drop out he was lucky to have been re-socialised by the art-group monochrom, which taught him about agency and its implications*

He writes/contributes to Free Software, previously for Plone during the 1.0 to 2.0 version bump, but also under the umbrella of Graffiti Research Lab a.k.a. G.R.L. (specifically as the localised Viennese cell) and keeps an open Git repository.

Another prominent part of his endeavours is community building and maintaining: for example by facilitating the distribution of €500.000 by the first self-organised government funding pool NetzNetz as part of its coordination team, with his long-standing involvement in the Viennese hackerspace Metalab (and the hacker community at large) or by co-founding an art-spaces like mo.ë. This, of course*, is an incomplete list of all his involvements.

As of autumn 2015, Michael holds a Master of Fine Arts degree from UoP/TI.

Presently, Michael has an ambivalent relationship with art, activism, and computers. Feel free to inquire why.
