UBERMORGEN.COM is an artist duo created in Vienna, Austria, by Lizvlx and Hans
Bernhard, a founder of etoy. Behind UBERMORGEN.COM we can find one of the most
unmatchable identities – controversial and iconoclast – of the contemporary European
techno-fine-art avant-garde. Their open circuit of conceptual art, drawing, software art, pixel-
