Description Lois Weinberger (*1947 in Stams, Tyrol) sustains a network that directs attention to peripheral zones. He sees himself as an agricultural worker, and began in the seventies with ethnopoetic works that form the basis for his artistic exploration of the spaces of nature and civilization. Ruderal plants and wasteland flora that touch all areas of our lives are the starting and orientation points for notes, drawings, photos, objects, texts, films, and works in public space. For documenta X, Weinberger planted an abandoned train platform with one hundred meters of neophytes from southern and southeastern Europe. They became a metaphor for the migration processes of our day, yet the poetic, political references went far beyond that. His works of art have made significant contributions to new debates about art and nature from the nineties to the present.
