Online Performance Art, since 2021

I am blurring the lines between performance art, political comendy, drag and social media content using the online platforms tiktok and instagram. I work with memes, pop music, social media trends and formats like makeup tutorials and fashion videos. I am adressing topics of political and social issues, feminism&gender, online technology and mental health.

Live Performance, 2022

Partyschlager/Volksmusik Dance songs as a genre is not only saturated with sexism but also tied to an easy palatable
party version of Austrian&German customs and displays of patriotism.
Andreas Gabalier wants women to iron their dirndl and DJ Robin sings about a girl who is “prettier, younger and hotter“. I am performing a lipsync medley of various partyschlager songs in hyperfeminine drag, wearing a dirndl, a blonde wig and a red string tanga with an edelweiss flower. The performance starts out with me embodying this erotic fantasy for the heteronormative male gaze but gets progressivly more disturbing.

Queering the KHM – Tiktok takeover
online performance art, 2022

As part of the project Queering the Kunsthistorisches Museum I took over their Tiktok account. In this self-contained series I produced 9 videos referencing paintings within the museum collection. I took the place of various historical & religious protagonists – doinga lipsync in drag as devil & archangel Michael or commenting on contemporary socio-economic inequality as Marie Antoinette. The videos were published online as well as shown on a screen in the
context of the physical exhibition – expanding a very traditional museal space with online art. (exhibition version) password: QHMJuni2022

I am delivering a political speech referencing the rhetoric of Austrian Ex-Chancellor Sebastian Kurz and other top politicians. I use rhetorical devices from Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) to say basically nothing for 5 minutes.

For You

I lipsync videos suggested to me by the tiktok algorithm on my „For You“ page.

Politics, fashion, crises, thirst traps, mental health or just fun? Topic and emotion change every few seconds as it would while scrolling.

I feel connected to people I will never meet, but who seem so similar to me.

von Weiblichkeit* auf.
