Johanna Bruckner (*1984 in Vienna, lives in Zurich) studied Fine Arts, Cultural Studies and Social Anthropology in Vienna, Berlin, New York, Stockholm and Hamburg. Bruckner's work relates to ecologies of trust and care and emphasizes on imagination a central instrument for new temporalities. In her practice, the hybridization of the nonhuman and human is a starting point for the indeterminacy and queernes of being. She unsettles and expands notions on the human body, intimacies and emotional worlds produced by the ongoing transformation of technology. Bruckner often works with video, installation and performance.
