The artist and filmmaker Katrina Daschner will speak about her personal view on the exhibition Works of Heart (1974–2022) by Sanja Iveković. Both artists take a clearly feminist position in their practice and from this stance tirelessly address gender and socio-political issues.
We kindly ask you to register in advance at email@example.com or directly at the cash desk in Kunsthalle Wien Museumsquartier. The number of participants is limited.
My View is a program series in which experts, non-experts and interesting people are invited to present their personal view on the exhibition.
The tour will be held in German.
Katrina Daschner’s solo exhibition, BURN & GLOOM! GLOW & MOON! Thousand Years of Troubled Genders, was presented last year at Kunsthalle Wien. In her works, which she presents at international exhibitions as well as film festivals, she deals with (gender-specific) power structures and the representation of queer sexuality as well as the transfer of stage language to the exhibition and film context.
Daschner founded numerous performance salons and hosted most recently the queer CLUB BURLESQUE BRUTAL (2009–2014) at brut Wien. From 2005 to 2010, she taught at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. In 2010, she was awarded the Otto Mauer Prize. In 2016, she received the first prize in the screenplay competition IF SHE CAN SEE IT, SHE CAN BE IT and the Diagonale Prize for Innovative Cinema in 2017. In 2018, she was awarded the Outstanding Artist Award for Experimental Film from the Federal Chancellery of Austria. From 2017 to 2019, she was a member of the theory curatorial team at Tanzquartier Wien.
