Holger Lang is an artist, director and producer living in Vienna.  His family moved from Germany to Austria in the 60s. His artistic work started in the late 70s, originally in the areas of painting, installation and sculpture. Soon he began to work with photography, performance, writing and words, signs and lines. In the early 80s he found a way to connect and combine multiple forms of expression in his work with film.

First he started to produce Super8 films, in later projects he was also using 16mm and 35mm film. A big part of his audio-visual work is of experimental nature. Besides continuing to create paintings, installations and sculptures he worked extensively with photography and also began to use video in 1988.

Since then he is also using his experience for professional commercial video production and graphic design. Throughout the 90s his experimental audio-visual work moved gradually into the field of digital-media and he is now working in multiple forms of traditional and electronic media. Holger Lang studied medicine, human biology, history, studio art and film & TV production.

In 1995 he started teaching at the art-department of Webster University in St.Louis, Missouri, in early 2003 also at Webster's media-department. In the same year he started to teach additionally in both departments at the Webster University Vienna campus. He is frequently traveling between Austria and the US and presented a variety of guest lectures at various universities.

Besides his broad teaching experience and his own artistic work he is running a media-production company in Vienna. His company is producing documentaries, video productions, graphics and web-design. Since summer 2007 he is assistant professor and researcher at the Vienna campus of Webster University.
