Karolin Braegger

Karolin Braegger is mentee of Jeanette Pacher

Karolin Braegger, *1993 in Zurich, lives and works in Vienna and Zurich. She holds a Diploma with honors in Fine Arts from the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna as well as a Diploma with honors in Fashion Design from the University of Applied Arts Vienna and a Bachelor in Fine Arts from the Zurich University of Arts.

Braegger's practice is situated between visual art, fashion and performance. The objects she creates incorporate an inherent ambivalence between sculpture, prop/costume and element of display.

Likewise, her performative work is characterized by a constant shift between the role of performer, organizer and facilitator. In maintaining a form of versatility as a systematic component of her work, she addresses the value of supportive gestures, with special attention to key cultural figures such as the servant, the caretaker, and the host. This leads her to sometimes work collaboratively and to explore multiple forms of delegation, adaptability, resource sharing, and transferred authorship.

She has just been a resident at Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris, is invited to do a lecture performance for the project Threading tomorrow at Pogon Jedinstvo organized by the Goethe- Institut in Zagreb and will be part of a group exhibition at Kunstforum in Vienna. She is working collaboratively with artist Brigham Baker on Quiltscapes, where they hosted their last workshop within the in:dépendance residency by ETH Zurich at Furkapass, Valais, in August. Recent solo and group exhibitions include AllStars (Lausanne), PROVENCE Pavillon (Zurich), Cabaret Voltaire (Zurich), Heiliger Kreuzerhof (Vienna), Exile (Vienna) and Sangt Hipolyt (Berlin).
