Claudia Lomoschitz (AT)
Art Hub Residency (Resident, fall 2023)
Claudia Lomoschitz is a Vienna-based artist whose practice combines video, performance, archival images and text to installations regarding body politics. Her artistic work revolves around reproductive fantasies that exceed normative discourses and facilitate spaces of embodied reflection.
She critically approaches visual iconography to carve out feminist and queer historiographies. Currently, she researches on the video project Architecture of Birth regarding female health infrastructures and reflects on how architecture and biopolitics shape reproductive practices. Alongside this research, she works on the performance project Queering the Void, that counteracts the often colonially deployed capitalist concept of nothingness, by looking at quantum field theory, which understands void as a transcendent and transformative matter inhabited by virtual particles.
Claudia Lomoschitz graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, studied at the Royal Danish Academy of Copenhagen and received her MA in Performance Studies at the University of Hamburg. Her works have been shown at brut Vienna (Cumulus, 2022), Wienwoche Vienna (Health Investment, 2022) WAF Galley Vienna (PARTUS Gyno Bitch Tits, 2021), Kunstraum Niederösterreich (PARTUS Gyno Bitch Tits, 2021), Tanzquartier Vienna (G.E.L., 2021), Belvedere 21 (Hätte ich doch lieber auf Amazon bestellt, 2019) and Kampnagel Hamburg (Induced Lactation, 2017).
