Katharina Zimmerhackl (b.1983,DE/US) works in the overlapping area of conceptual art and theory. Her focus lies on visual and literary languages and the production of knowledge, collectivities and collective work as well as history and the reflection on its writing and production, especially from a feminist point of view. Often, her work reappropriates scientific or artistic methods, resulting in scripts, scores or notations as systems of organizing and structuring the researched material. Theatrical and narrative elements of the stage as well as performative elements are also aspects of her installations and soundworks. Her artistic practice is accompanied by a theoretical practice as editor of the feminist magazine outside the box – Zeitschrift für feministische Gesellschaftskritik – including writing, public appearances (talks, lectures) or workshops – as well as curatorial work for D21-Kunstraum Leipzig. She has studied Media Art and Graphic Design at the Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst in Leipzig. 2014/15 she was an Artistic Researcher at the Van Eyck Academie in Maastricht/NL and she was supported through the saxonian arts council (KdFS) with a working grant and an acquisition for the public collection (Sächsiche Kunstsammlung Dresden). Recent exhibitions or performances e.g. include GfZK Leipzig/DE, Kunsthal Ghent/NL, Moscow MOMA, Haus der elektronischen Künste (HeK) Basel/CH, Nieuwe Vide Haarlem/NL, Kunsthalle Recklinghausen, Halle 14 – Zentrum für zeitgenössische Kunst Leipzig or Atelierhaus Salzamt, Linz/A.
