Bernhard Schreiner studied at the Academy of Fine Art in Frankfurt with the avant-garde
film artist Peter Kubelka. Schreiner’s work is spread over diverse media such as sound,
photography, film, and installation. The phantom kind of sound is somehow central,
expressed either in sound installations or on silk-screen prints and photographs, which
the artist additionally connects to the ‘spirit photography’ of the late 19th century.
In the very manner Schreiner manipulates images of famous musicians such as John
Coltrane or Glenn Gould.
