Buergel received his education at the Institute of Contemporary Art (under Johannes Gachnang) at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna and subsequently worked as private secretary to Viennese activist Hermann Nitsch. Since the 1990s Buergel has mounted numerous exhibitions, often in collaboration with his partner Ruth Noack, including documenta 12 in 2007. Throughout his career, Buergel held various teaching posts, most recently as Visiting Professor of Art History at the Art Academy Karlsruhe (2007–09). He serves as the Founding Director of the Johann Jacobs Museum in Zurich, an exhibition space and research institution dedicated to the cultural residue of global trade routes.
Among the first exhibitions Buergel and Noack organized was in 1995 “Scenes of Theory” [Szenen einer Theorie] at Depot (Vienna), an intertextual exploration of cinema, film theory and art.
