I and my dear colleague team at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna – Jakob Lena Knebl, Valerie Lange and Claudia Lomoschitz – have been busy with coordinating and planning the yearly week of open doors (Akademierundgang) at the Institute for Education in the Arts (IKL). In addition to the artworks and project presentations by students at our institute (Karl-Schweighofer-Gasse 3, 1070 Wien), this year our programme includes the exhibition we never sleep in the office of the Vice-Rectors of the Academy at Spittelau (Augasse 2-6, 1090 Wien), curated by us (Knebl, Lahtinen, Lange, Lomoschitz). Here are a few first snapshots, more photos to follow …
Photos: J. L. Knebl, J. Lahtinen. Works in the exhibition we never sleep by Sophia Hatwagner, Maximilian Hisse, Beatrice Küninger, Ulrike Leitner, Alexander Mohr, Johanna Serdinschek, Elia Stefan and Moritz Zangl.
Artists of the video installation some everyday realities: Sofía Fuenzalida Ihnen, Martina Höpfner Asmussen, Sarah Peprnik, Florian Salvesberger and Alisa Wolf. The installation was developed with support from Joonas Lahtinen.
Our team at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna will co-host workshops and lectures today at Kunsthalle Wien at Museumsquartier — hope to see you there! The event is convened by Prof. Elke Krasny and Curator Vanessa Joan Müller of Kunsthalle Wien.
Welcome to the one-day symposium UNSETTLING FEMINIST CURATING on Friday 01. December 2017 at the Atelierhaus of the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna!! The conference is curated by my dear colleagues Prof. Elke Krasny and Barbara Mahlknecht together with Lara Perry and Dorothee Richter. The last few weeks we at the Department of Art and Education have been busy with the preparations.
Hope to see you there — join us for exciting and progressive lectures, discussions and performances!!
I have been invited to present a research paper at the “ACT.MOVE.PERFORM.” conference at the University of Technology Dresden (TU Dresden / Institute of Art and Music, Department of Art Education) on Sunday 08 October 2017. My presentation is entitled How to address politics of the sensible in participatory performance practice? ‘Sensory fields’, ‘experience fields’ and ‘body techniques’ as materialist-performative analytical tools and it builds on my previous article in Nordic Theatre Studies (2015). I look forward to an interesting day with fellow researchers and artists!
My first semester as a University Assistant (equivalent to “Lecturer” in many other countries) at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna has come to an end — I took care of two exhibitions (display&management), taught my first art course, took part in a prize jury, and successfully mentored students about grant applications and portfolio design.
Now I will have some time for own project planning – within the next years, there will be a lot going on on many fronts!
I wish all of you blog readers a relaxed and warm summer!

One of the main Finnish radio stations YLE PUHE interviewed me about my life as an artist and researcher living in Vienna and Helsinki, and about the differences between the two cities and countries (sorry, in Finnish only). The interview series is titled “Maailmankansalaisia” that roughly translates as “Cosmopolitans”. You can listen to the interview here. On the website, you also have access to our previous radio interview about R.I.P. SERVICES at YLE PUHE in August 2016, titled “Koska hengityskoneet sammutetaan?” (“When should we switch off the respiration machine?”).
Last week, the culture TV channel ORF 3 showed a documentary about architect Margarete Schütte-Lihotzky’s life, including a short sequence with my dramaturge (and relative of Schütte-Lihotzky) Luzie Stransky and of our performance/installation EIN.KÜCHEN.BAU (about from min. 35:00 onwards). The documentary can be viewed online a few days only (click here).
