Hans Bernhard is a Vienna/St. Moritz based artist whose true
madness first surfaced when he started up the internet-underground cult 'etoy' in 1994.
In 1999 he and three other founding members of etoy
bought the mother company etoy.holding while investing dot-com money in
a Sofia-based software firm (esof ltd).
In the same year, he and lizvlx created uebermorgen.com - a system critical leftover of net.art.
During the web site action
'Vote-Auction' to buy and sell votes during the 2000 U.S. presidential
elections, Hans and lizvlx (UBERMORGEN.COM) were sued by 12 U.S. states,
investigated by U.S. federal attorney Janet Reno, observed by the FBI,
the CIA and the Austrian secret police and put under NSA surveillance.
After that he initiated NAZI~LINE (with Christoph Schlingensief), a
neo-nazi re-integration project. Other projects currently getting him
into serious trouble with German/Austrian secret services and corporate
lawyers include GWEI (Google Will Eat Itself), the Injunction Generator
and Amazon Noir.
