He has just started his tenure as Circus Director of the Circus of Knowledge at the Johannes Kepler University in Linz.
Among other institutions Airan Berg was the artistic director of Festival der Regionen in Upper Austria and the Schauspielhaus in Vienna. He served as artistic director for performing arts of the European Capital of Culture Linz09.
