Johannes Franz (*1985) lives and works in Vienna. Since 2009 he participates in exhibitions as a single artist or with artists collectives. Key landmarks of his multimedia-based artworks are collective work practices and urban interventions. The influence of artistic strategies in the development process of a city with regard to social behavior crosses most of his recent work.

His art production is vigorously connected with collectivist beliefs. He is co-founder of the collective baer - Wiener KünstlerInnenvereinigung and sowieso! Kunstworkshops für Kinder mit Behinderung. He also works with vienna-based artists collective WochenKlausur.

Since November 2015 he hosts the monthly artists-presentation BEWÄHRUNGSPROBE# in Vienna.
