Sabine Bitter / Helmut Weber
Since 1993, Vancouver and Vienna based artists Sabine Bitter (1960, Aigen i.M., Austria) and Helmut Weber (1957, Dorf/Pram, Austria) have collaborated on projects adressing urban geographies, architectural representations and related visual politics.

Their series of photo- and video-works like "Recent Geographies", "Caracas, Hecho en Venezuela" and "LIVE LIKE THIS!" engage with specific moments and cultural logics of (neoliberal) globalization, as they are materialized in architecture as a frame for spatial meaning..

In 2004, Sabine Bitter, Jeff Derksen and Helmut Weber have formed the urban research collective Urban Subjects US.

Since 2007 represented by Grita Insam Gallery, Vienna
