Stefanie Seibold

Stefanie Seibold is an artist working with Objects, Archives, Installations, Performance, Video, Sound and Text. In her* work she examines forms of social performativity and possibilities of its transformation and resignification. In live performances, video and sound pieces as well as (archival) installations she* rephrases influential rituals, gestures and speech acts that are applied to form subjects. 

Seibold is the co-author of a comprehensive book on Performance in Vienna since the 1960s. Her* imperative to include research in her projects lies in locating the manifold, marginalised and often devalued contributions of women* to art and design history and to re-present their* exciting works today. She* has been curating several shows and publications on the topic and just recently concluded a long-term project together with Alice Maude-Roxby: the exhibition Resist: Be modern (again) at the John Hansard Gallery in Southampton and the book-project Censored Realities/ Changing New York published with Camera Austria, Graz.

Her* work has been shown at the de Appel arts center, Amsterdam, the MuhKa, Antwerp, Montehermoso, Vitoria-Gasteiz, Museum Moderner Kunst and Belvedere 21, Vienna etc. She* currently teaches as Professor at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna and is engaged with building up the new Department of Gender and Space there.
