In his multimedia artworks, Lois Weinberger (born 1947) has been circling around the subject of nature with great concentration since the 1970s. With minimal design and barely visible interventions, he transforms plants and flora into perfect, provisory territories.

Working since the 1970s, Austrian artist Lois Weinberger (born 1947) uses plants as starting points for public art projects, drawings and films. At Documenta 10, for example, Weinberger planted a disused train platform with fauna from southern and southeastern Europe, as a metaphor for patterns of migration. This 400-page volume surveys his works.
