images of / off images

The project “images of / off images”

The project “images of / off images” by İpek Hamzaoğlu, Laura Nitsch and Sophie Thun deals with the modes of production for and in the context of the Austrian Pavilion at the Venice Biennale 2019.

The artists focus—through the media of photography, film and sound—on the specific aspects of the desire to be part of, to be related to, to belong to and to be excluded from the Venice Biennale, while also tackling their own entanglements and participation in these mechanisms. Embedded in queer-feminist practices, their work documents, comments, distorts and (de-)construcst the (symbolic) development process of the Austrian Pavilion.

Their project will be shown in various formats online at “images of / off images” and conclude with a short film after the closing of the 2019 Biennale.
