Eckermann is an artist commited to a discursive engagement with form and media that culminates in critical artistic reflections about our entanglement as individuals in current socio-economic situations. Eckermann works with various media including digital and physical environments, installations, videos, objects, and sculptures. Eckermann is the first recipient of the City of Vienna Award for Media Art (2014).

He graduated from the Academy of fine arts Vienna (1992) and conducted artistic fieldwork as broker and trader (1994-97). His most recent publication is Making of Finance (with Armen Avanessian, Merve Berlin, 2015). Nestler is a PhD candidate at the Centre for Research Architecture, Goldsmiths, University of London.
