born 1960 in Aigen, Upper Austria; lives and works in Vienna and Vancouver.
Since 1993, Sabine Bitter and Helmut Weber have cooperated on projects addressing urban geographies, architectural representations and related visual politics. Educated at University for Applied Arts in Linz with Laurids Ortner, their artistic works focus on emergent sites and overlaps of architecture, urban developments, communications systems and modes of artistic and cultural production as they are mediated through photography, video and new media technologies.
