Bernhard Cella (born 1969 in Salzburg) is an Austrian artist and curator.
Cella studied at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna with Erich Wonder, the University of Arts and Industrial Design Linz with Herbert Lachmayer and the Hochschule für bildende Künste Hamburg. Cella was a researcher in the Center of Art and Knowledge Transfer at the University of Applied Arts Vienna and led the project 'NO ISBN' which investigated Austrian art publications with and without ISBN. In 2015 he left the university to continue his research with the project 'Behind No-ISBN' at the independent Research Institute for Arts and Technology.
Cella is an advocate of artist books as a medium and has curated numerous exhibitions with and about artist books. He has stated that a good art book can replace a visit to a museum, because it offers many possibilities for discourse and experimentation.Read more on Wikipedia
