About

My research based art projects often explore the practice of fiction-making as a political process in art, literature, politics, history, and popular culture, with an emphasis on feminist, queer, post- and de(s)colonial/izing theories and practices. This interest of mine is closely intertwined with questions of linguistic, cultural and socio-political processes of transformation and translation, my role as an artist within them and the privileges I may lack or have as a result of my gender, race, class, ethnicity, age, education and profession.

In my artistic practice, I am not binding myself to a particular medium. I employ the media of video and photography, work with archival materials, language and sound, produce performances, printed matters and installations, write and publish, and convene events.

Alongside my individual practice, I have eagerly collaborated with members of the artistic and/or academic community to realize projects that attempt to develop new strategies for collaboration, artistic research, and the creation of discursive interdisciplinary fields.

Since 2012 I have been part of the board of the Austrian Association on Women Artists (VBKÖ, www.vbkoe.org) where, in 2012, I co-founded the Secretariat for Ghosts, Archival Politics and Gaps (http://www.skgal.org/) – an open working group that focuses on the 104-years of history of the association and the practices of feminist archival politics and history writing.

Since 2013 I have been part of INVASORIX, a queer-feminist working group in Mexico City who is interested in songs, video clips, publications and tarot readings as activist and didactic practices.
