Katharina Zimmerhackl


My artistic practice moves between sound art, installation, performance and graphic printing/drawing. The thematic focus is on the exploration of different forms of knowledge, their historical production and their political implications – especially from a feminist point of view. I am interested in the boundaries between what is thought of as "normal" and "other", between rational and irrational. This is another reason why my work repeatedly explores topics from (natural) sciences, psychoanalysis and centers on the body. I appropriate scientific, literary and/or archival materials and transform them into scripts or (graphic) scores that prominently work with spoken word and vocal expression. These printed works are realized as performances, sound pieces or sound installations. In addition to my artistic practice, as an editor and graphic designer I am part of the magazine project outside the box – Zeitschrift für feministische Gesellschaftskritik, in the context of which I organize readings, lectures and workshops.
